THE GALAPAGOS HAWK

EL GAVILÁN DE GALÁPAGOS

The Galapagos Hawk reflects an investigation of more than 50 years of field studies in the eight Galapagos islands where the sparrowhawk lives. It is a great contribution to knowledge regarding an animal which is vital to the Galapagos food network. One interesting aspect of this study is the complexity of this raptor’s social life. Several males live together with a female in a certain area, which is a territory that all males together with the female, defend against other polyandrous groups or hawk couples. The different males within the territory bring food to the chicks in the nest; males copulate with the female, that means the chicks have different parents, and thereby contribute to the population’s genetic variability. The book has 209 pages with texts in English and Spanish, and is divided into 12 Chapters. The book was published in two languages so that its content can be used by biology students and other career students, as well as to gain an understanding of the natural history of the Galapagos Islands.
