Atlas of Duck Populations in Eastern Europe Print

The "Atlas of Duck Populations in Eastern Europe" is a book produced by OMPO - the European Institute for the management of wild birds and their habitats, and its Unit OMPO-Vilnius. It is a synthesis of recent knowledge on 11 duck species of Eastern Europe, in six Eastern European countries (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, European Russia, Belarus and Ukraine).

Seven of these species are dabbling ducks of the genus Anas: Eurasian Widgeon, Gadwall, Common Teal, Mallard, Northern Pintail, Garganey and Northern Shoveler while the four others are diving ducks of the genus Aythya: Ferruginous Duck, Common Pochard, Tufted Duck, Greater Scaup.

Preface by Jean-Marc Michel, Director General of Planning, Housing and Nature of the French Ministry for Ecology, Sustainable Development, Transport and Housing, and written by prominent duck specialists from Eastern Europe. This book provides new data on these migratory birds, in a key geographical area for their conservation which provides refuge for the major part of their Palearctic populations: e.g. over 90% for the Eurasian Wigeon, Northern Pintail and Greater Scaup.


La bécassine sourde / The Jack Snipe Print

 A Monograph on the Jack Snipe


Published by OMPO (Migratory Birds of the Western Palearctic), this book devoted specifically to the Jack Snipe, must be in the library of any Snipe "lover".

This monograph brings together the current knowledge on the biology, ethology, phenology, ecology of the species within its distribution range. It is focussed on a unique knowledge on the management of the birds' habitat, specifying its ecological "niche" and identifying factors necessary for its occurrence in numbers.

A set of concrete proposals on measures to be taken are anticipated, among which the reform of the taxation on wetlands is the most important. Studies resources as needed to greater knowledge of the species are listed.

Studies of the species age-ratio, harvest estimates and ringing data, permit to evaluate it its actual conservation status.
