9780520272972: 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 Despard 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.

"There was nothing like for the mammals of Africa or anywhere else in the world and after two decades there still isn’t. The Guide provides an invaluable baseline of information that can never be superseded. . . . There are new data and insights, but the Guide retains its place as a landmark in African 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

About the Author:

Richard Estes is one of the world's foremost experts on the social ecology of African mammals. Daniel Otte is Curator and Chairman of the Department of Entomology at the Academy of Natural Sciences, Philadelphia. E. O. Wilson is Frank B. Baird, Jr., Professor of Science and Curator in Entomology at Harvard University and co-author of The Ants (1990).
