Book Description

1 Dec 2005 Wildlife Monographs
"Wildlife Monographs", a series of fabulous, full-colour books led by stunning photographic images with fresh, informative and vivid new text charting our favourite wild animals on their home terrain. The first eight volumes in the series track the lives of elephants, cheetahs, sharks, leopards, giant pandas, polar bears, penguins and monkeys of the Amazon. The spellbinding, intimate images captured by some of the worlds premier wildlife photographers breathe with vivid insight and a shared sense of being there, being closer than most of us can ever hope to be. With bright, easy to read and compelling text that successfully combines fascinating information with accessibility, these are books to give as gifts, to treasure and to share across every age from eight to eighty. Here's a glimpse of some of the worlds increasingly rare and endangered species, captured on camera in their natural habitats. If we aren't careful, they may not be there for much longer, and each volume is also a plea for protection, backed by leading campaigners. "Giant Pandas" provides an insight into the way of life of pandas through the eyes of wildlife photographer and zoologist Heather Angel. Since giant pandas spend most of each day feeding on bamboo, it is difficult to get photographs showing different aspects of their behaviour. Few people get the chance of seeing pandas in the wild and the images in this book provide a rare insight into the life of a unique mammal within a remote mountain habitat. Pandas are active throughout the year for, unlike brown bears, they do not hibernate. Amongst the stunning photographs are rare shots of a mother with her baby frolicking in the snow. The book also explains the tremendous efforts undertaken in China and elsewhere - both with captive breeding programmes and enhancing natural habitats - to ensure this iconic animal is saved for future generations to enjoy. It features stunning full colour photography; high gloss paperback with flaps; and engaging text.
