Amazon Parrots: Aviculture, Trade and Conservation by Rosemary Low is a useful and attractive book. The first part is a general account divided into 11 chapters dealing with Amazon parrots in aviculture, as companion birds and in the wild. The second part focuses on the individual species accounts.

An introductory chapter precedes chapters on housing, diet, captive breeding, Amazon parrots as companion birds and health care. The authorís lifetime of experience working with these birds ensures that good advice is given on all these subjects. She favours natural varied diets and outdoor aviaries rather than suspended indoor flight cages. Following this section are chapters on introduced populations, life in the wild, conservation, extinct Amazon parrots and tradeÖ

The species accounts are each sub-divided into sections entitled: Distinguishing Features, Immature Birds, Subspecies, Aviculture, Country of Origin, Habitat, Habits, and Status and Threats. A map indicating the range of the species is included and numerous colour photos illustrate not only the species but most importantly the various subspecies. Much original information comes from the authorís own experience gained whilst working with the excellent parrot collections at Palmitos Park and Loro Parque on the Canary Islands.
