How do penguins navigate? What do they eat and how do they find it? How does the Emperor Penguin, breeding in the depth of winter, survive without food for half a year? This is the first volume in a new series based on work already achieved in the Handbook of Australian, New Zealand and Antarctic Birds. It offers a concise, more readable and fully illustrated version of the entries on penguins in Volume One of HANZAB. Penguins of the World includes all 17 species found throughout the world, from the Fairy Penguins of the famous Penguin Reserve on Phillip Island, Victoria, to the spectacular King Penguin. As well as offering a general introduction to penguins, Pauline Reilly retains the major features of HANZAB such as description, habitat, distribution, population, food, behaviour and breeding, while omitting some of the more highly detailed, scientific information. This book is a perfect introduction to this appealing bird family. Suitable for children and tourists as well as ornithologists.
