Albatrosses Their World, Their Ways by Julian Fitter, Mark Jones, Tui De Roy

Albatrosses are highly threatened and in the public eye; they are the ultimate seabirds, living almost their entire lives at sea. The RSPB currently has a big campaign to help save them. This book is both an authoritative book covering all the world's species and a beautiful work of art to admire. It is illustrated with 300 breathtaking colour photographs from an award-winning photographer. The text comprises a series of essays by leading experts in the field and a systematic section that gives identification, behavioural and distributional information for each of the world's 22 species.
