Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

New Zealand and its territories are home to a greater number of penguin species than any other region on the planet. Not only are these birds a tourist draw, they are the subject of much ongoing research. Lloyd Spencer Davis, one of the country's top researchers into penguin biology and behaviour, has written an informative and accessible guide to 12 species, covering all key aspects from their evolution and prehistory to their feeding and breeding behaviour and current conservation issues. Penguin watching is also covered, making this the perfect birdwatcher's souvenir as well as a fascinating primer on these much-loved birds. This is the first title in a new A5-sized full-colour series from New Holland on New Zealand's wildlife, targeted at a family readership. It will be followed in February 2010 with KIWI AND OTHER FLIGHTLESS BIRDS OF NEW ZEALAND.
