Product information

A detailed 'biography' of ducks and geese that breed in or regularly visit the UK – covering 30 species in all. Chapters include, the evolution of ducks and geese, their place in the natural world, their anatomy and physiology, various feeding methods, spectacular courtship displays and diverse breeding behaviour.

Marianne Taylor reveals their often epic migrations and examines their social interactions with their own and other species, including their unusual readiness to hybridise. Marianne details their relationships with humankind over the centuries, including their presence in folklore and literature and their role in our lives as both prey and pets. She also explores their presence as feral and sometimes invasive species outside their natural ranges, and their current status within their native wild ranges as the group includes several species recently recognised as being of global conservation concern.
