“The Hill Mynah in Thailand: a 30-year study. Behavioral Ecology, Evolution and Conservation Biology” is an integration of the field, experimental, and laboratory studies conducted from 1987 to 2017 on Gracula religiosa, the hill myna or for simplicity in this book, the hill mynah. These studies were first inspired by the need to enhance knowledge on the tropical bird species inhabiting South-East Asia. Most behavioral ecology, evolutionary, and conservation biology concepts on birds are based on studies concerning temperate species. Efficient wildlife conservation operations are generally based on information achieved by examining the life history, evolution, and behavior of that particular species and/or its relatives. Therefore, studying and revealing the life history of hill mynah allowed developing a practical conservation program for this species.
