Not so old, and still relevant
On 21 February 2006 Theunis Piersma became professor at the University of Groningen, the text of the inaugural lecture is available in Dutch and in English:
- Piersma, T. “Animal ecology: habitat choice and changing numbers of animals in a changing world” (2006).
For the students of today, what can not be easily reached by a mouse click, seems old and probably irrelevant. This is true for much of the scientific literature from before 1990. In this section we make available a few ‘golden oldies’, publications on which the current work of Team Piersma builds which have not been published in digital form:
- Altenburg, W., Engelmoer, M., Mes, R. & Piersma, T. (1982). Wintering waders on the Banc d’Arguin, Mauritania. Report of the Netherlands Ornithological Mauritanian Expedition 1980.. Leiden: Stichting Veth tot steun aan Waddenonderzoek.
