About the book

Seabirds are creatures that rely on the sea environment to some extent or another. Colour, behaviour, adaptations, niche, and ecology may all differ dramatically. They have critical functions in marine ecosystems, including transferring nutrients from the ocean to pelagic regions, islands, and coral reefs. Even though they are vitally important components of marine ecosystems, they are facing overwhelming threats from water pollution, habitat damage, and capturing in nets and hook lines used by fishermen, seabird conservation and protection is a major problem.

Ecology, physiology, behavior, adaptations, niche, populations, diversity and variability, and habitats will all be covered in this book. Scientists, ecologists, environmentalists, students, and birders will find the book useful.
