"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.
