9780124105706: The Natural History of the Wild Cats

Everyone is familiar with the big cats―the lion, tiger, leopard, and jaguar―members of the genus Panthera. The smaller cats―members of the genus Felis―are less familiar. This absorbing book, considered "a comprehensive survey" by David Quammen, writing in the New York Times Book Review, presents what is known about the thirty-seven or so species of the world's cats, including abundant information on the much-neglected smaller members of the cat family."Dr. Kitchener . . . has made a readable, up-to-date synthesis of what we know about cats, his account always strengthened by the comparative point of view."―Scientific American"The numerous tables and comprehensive bibliography will appeal to the scientist, while the breadth of topics discussed, summary of numerous studies published in hard-to-find journals, numerous graphs and line drawings, and emphasis on the smaller cats and their behaviour, will make it of wider interest."―John Deag, Times Higher Education Supplement
