L. David Mech is a wildlife research biologist with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and a professor in the department of Fisheries and Wildlife at the University of Minnesota. He is the author of The Wolves of Isle Royale and The Wolf: The Ecology and Behavior of an Endangered Species (available from Minnesota). Mech’s long experience as a radio-tracker dates back to the developmental work done at Minnesota in the early 1960s.From Library Journal:
Alaska's Denali National Park contains the world's least disturbed mainland wolf population. Although research on the wolves dates back to the 1940s, no comprehensive, long-term study was undertaken until 1986 when Mech, a world-renowned wolf expert, led a team of biologists in a nine-year study of the wolves and their prey. This book covers all aspects of wolf ecology, including natural history, pack organization and function, and the wolves' special relationship with Denali's caribou herds. The meshing of a concurrent longitudinal study of the park's caribou with the wolf research lends added value. The writing is clear, the chapters are well organized, and the book is replete with photographs (including 16 color plates). But the ample complement of statistics, graphs, and tables and lack of anecdotal accounts makes it less accessible to a lay reader than Michael K. Phillips's and Douglas W. Smith's The Wolves of Yellowstone (LJ 1/97) and Thomas McNamee's The Return of the Wolf to Yellowstone (LJ 5/15/97). For academic libraries and public libraries with large environmental/biology collections.?Lynn C. Badger, Univ. of Florida Lib., Gainesville
