This book, collating the knowledge of four orni-thologists with considerable expertise across the world, should be welcomed by the many people engaged in conservation of tropical birds. The avian extinction crisis is focused in the tropics, but research and conservation efforts remain heavily biased toward richer, higher-latitude countries. COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

Sirenia is the order of placental mammals which comprises modern "sea cows" (manatees and the Dugong) and their extinct are the only extant herbivorous marine mammals and the only group of herbivorous mammals to have become completely aquatic. Sirenians are thought to have a million-year-old fossil record (early Eocene-recent).They attained modest diversity during the. This book as I envisioned it would emphasize conservation and management issues, research strategies, and the role of scientists in integrating their research into conservation. Within a week I received more than 60 responses from sirenian researchers all over the world wishing to contribute.

In their book, Ecology and Conservation of the Sirenia: Dugongs and Manatees, authors Helena Marsh, Thomas J. O'Shea and John E. Reynolds, III, describe the evolution of Nanosiren garciae from the Crenatosiren lineage, and argue that their small size allowed them access to very shallow water unavailable to larger sea : Dugongidae.   This book is a must for anyone with an interest in plant conservation in any part of the world.'
