9780198540700: Wild Otters: Predation and Populations

Wild Otters answers the need for an up-to-date, scientifically-oriented introduction to the Lutra lutra species. Based in part on the author's extensive field observations, the book provides a superb basis for active conservation management of a species faced with an increasingly hostile environment. Topics include social organization and behavior, food and foraging strategies, ecological information on their main prey fish, problems of energetics and thermo-insulation, population structure, mortality and reproduction, and the impact of humans. Packed with illustrations and photographs, Wild Otters is perfect for students and researchers in ecology, conservation, zoology, and animal behavior.

About the Author:

Hans Kruuk is at Institute of Terrestrial Ecology, Banchory.

Review:

`Kruuk's study is a good example of how traditional methods of field work may be combined with radiotelemetry to provide a good understanding of the organization of individuals and populations. This book is an excellent description of a unique long-term field study, and is written in such a
way that it should appeal to specialists and non-specialists alike. The photographs and line drawings which complement the text combine to provide a high standard of presentation.'
Piran White, Journal of Animal Ecology, 65, 1996

`his book is an invaluable source of data which constitute a significant advance in our knoweldge of the species' behaviour ... The beautiful illustrations which accompany the text give the book a special character and enhance its readability still further.'
Ildiko Kemenes, University of Sussex, Animal Behaviour, 50.6

`For those working with otters or with a strong interest in mammals, this book is definitely recommended.'
Melanie Findlay, Scottish Wildlife, No. 26, Summer '95

`a fine natural history study which covers all aspects of this fascinating animal's life form social organisation and behaviour, food and foraging strategies, prey, population, mortality and reproduction, as well as the impact from humans ... I would think everyone interested in wildlife and
nature conservation will want to read this book'
Western Morning News

`one of the most informative and fascinating books I have read for many years'
David C. Houston, Glasgow Naturalist, 23.1 June 1996

`I found this book fascinating. Although no doubt biased because of my own interest in otters, I recommend it to anyone interested in carnivore ecology and conservation.'
Katherine Ralls, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC, TREE vol. 10, no. 10, October 1995
