    Derived from a workshop held in 2002 at the North American Ornithological Conference in New Orleans, this is a book that will benefit people using banding as a technique, no matter their level. Banding, as a subject, is well covered in most regards, and the volume has much to recommend it. It is a review of many aspects of the monitoring and research methods and applications of bird banding. In 12 chapters, the authors deal with history, banding organizations and agencies, and the role of banding in various research and management applications. As a bander for half those years, I naturally found the book interesting and, further, learned of many applications that I hadn’t fully appreciated.
