David Alderton is a noted writer on the living world. He is active internationally in conservation matters, especially CITES and its work on the protection of the world's threatened species.From School Library Journal:
YA-A broad, comprehensive overview of the world's wild felines. The first half of the book covers the animals' anatomy, way of life, and interaction with humans. The second half is a species-by-species look at the specific cats. A map and a description indicates where they can be found. The author's ecological concerns are evident throughout. The full-color photographs are detailed and intriguing and amount to perhaps a third of the book. Appendixes list conservationist groups and the taxonomy of the species and subspecies. The pages are almost of plate quality. A compact volume that contains a wealth of information for reports.
