Collingwood 2008, kt., 128 Seiten, Farbfotos. Mound-builders are unique in being the only birds that do not incubate their eggs using body heat, rather, a variety of naturally occurring sources of heat is exploited such as solar energy and the heat generated by decomposing organic matter. This book shows how this remarkable adaptation influences every part of these birds’ lives, including the development of the embryo, the parentless life of the hatchlings, their social organisation and their survival. Twenty-two species of mound-builders exist within the Megapode family. Mound-builders examines the three occurring in Australia, the Scrubfowl in the humid tropics, the Brush turkey in dense forested areas from Cape York to Sydney, and most remarkable of all, the Malleefowl in the arid interior.
