Summary
In every scientific discipline, there is an official language formed of many words derived from Latin. Ornithology and bird watching are perfect examples. The scientific names of birds define the identity and relationships among the approximately 10,000 known species. Latin for Birdwatchers introduces you to the Latin words used to describe bird species. In addition to over 3000 definitions, the book profiles 12 great ornithologists, looks in depth at 20 bird genera, and contains over 200 beautiful ornithological illustrations. Latin for Birdwatchers will enhance your birding experience and make your identification activities easier not to mention allowing you to impress your fellow birders!
