The taxa covered comprise the four orders of primary seabirds: Sphenisciformes (penguins), Procellariiformes (albatrosses, shearwaters, petrels), Pelecaniformes (pelicans, boobies, frigatebirds, tropicbirds, cormorants), and certain Charadriiformes (alcids, gulls, and terns), and some marine-associated shorebirds and wading birds. Overall, a most comprehensive volume that should be well received by waterbird biologists. (After D.N.
