Product Description

Review

... surely destined to be the key reference point on a subject which is currently featuring high on international agendas for conservation priorities ... This global coverage ... encompassing both the large and small felids, is especially refreshing, and results in an almost encyclopaedic coverage. It could serve as a model for reference works on other groups of organisms of conservation importance. (Biodiversity and Conservation)

Nicely structured book started with the evolution & biology of wild cats followed by several case studies of conservation in action. Perfect base book for my dissertation.

Format: Paperback
This is the best book on the biology, ecology and conservation of wild cats. Written in a scientific yet easy to follow language, this book can be read by anyone interested in the conservation of those amazing predators (no need for a degree in biology to be able to understand the book).

The book covers all species of wild cats. There is a focus on the larger species like tigers, leopards, lions, etc but there is also a lot of information on many small species.

I hope more similar volumes will be published in the future (for example about eagles).

This book is a must for anyone interested in wild cats, predator ecology and conservation.

Very nice and interesting book 11 Feb. 2013
By Marie G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a very nice recopilation of information about wild felids. You have species listing per area, a brief summary of all species, evolution and morphology of cats, ecology and behaviour, and then several chapters discussing different topics relevant to wild cat research. It has good references and a scientifist list of people wolrdwide working of felids.
I found it very interesting and useful.
The only downside is that I would have liked colour pictures of all species, at it has select picutres in black and white.
As a biologist, I would reccomend this book to anyone interested in wild cats, if you dont find what you re looking for, it will certainly point out the direction.
