Dunning, John B., editor.

Comprehensive and extensive in its scope, the CRC Handbook of Avian Body Masses compiles the most up-to-date information available from a wide range of literature sources (including regional publications) to provide a ready reference on body masses of most of the world’s species of birds. This second edition includes an accompanying CD-ROM with a searchable electronic database. This new edition also features more complete coverage of the world’s avifauna as well as expanded coverage of birds of South America, Japan, China, Africa, and the Pacific Islands. In addition, the order of species and families has been revised in the text to fit with the latest publications in avian taxonomy and systematics.
