1 Review
"This book, the first one to portray a tropical seabird community, treats the 22 species of seabirds of the Hawaiian archipelago from a conservationist point of view. . . . A class book that is well researched and an important addition to seabird literature."--Charles E. Keller, Indiana Audubon Quarterly.

"This review of Hawaiian seabirds represents one of the very few accounts of a tropical seabird community. . . . For anyone hoping for a perspective on tropical seabird communities, I strongly recommend this book."--P.G. H. Evans, Journal of the British Ornithologists' Union
