This handsome book provides an authoritative overview of albatross biology and touches upon highly relevant topics such as ocean-ography, bathymetry and the unique niche that albatrosses have in human culture. A huge amount of information is beautifully blended with Tickell's many years of experience studying albatross biology in the field. Literally hundreds of diagrams, tables and maps provide the meat for his synthesis and the bibliography of primary references is extensive. All in all, this is a key volume for any student of oceanic birds, their biology and their conservation.
