9780520080850: The Behavior Guide to African Mammals: Including Hoofed Mammals, Carnivores, Primates

The Behavior Guide to African Mammals is as different from a conventional field guide as motion pictures are from a snapshot. Whether we are able to look at them face to face, on television, or in the hundreds of illustrations provided here by Daniel Otte, this guide allows us to understand what animals do and what their behavior means.

Drawing on his own extensive fieldwork and on the research of many other scientists, Richard Estes describes and explains the behavior of four major groups of mammals. Estes's remarkably informative guide is as up-to-date for the zoologist as it is accessible for the interested onlooker.

From the Inside Flap:

"A work of tremendous scope. . . . Amateur naturalists and tourists to the parks of Africa and finally professionals will find this a stimulating, well-documented summary."—John F. Eisenberg, Florida Museum of Natural History

"We have seen in the field how very helpful and informative The Behavior Guide is. Our knowledgeable safari guides turned often to their prized and already well-thumbed copies, and we continue to refer to ours now that we are back home."—Douglas F. Williamson, Jr., National Council, World Wildlife Fund, U.S.

"A fascinating, perceptive, and enjoyable travel companion heightens the pleasure of being afield. The Behavior Guide to African Mammals is that ideal companion. Lucid, accurate, and marvelously illustrated, the book is a basic reference for anyone interested in natural history."—George B. Schaller, author of The Serengheti Lion and The Deer and the Tiger

"A remarkable review of what is known about the larger African mammals."—A.R.E. Sinclair, The Ecology Group, University of British Columbia

From the Back Cover:
