Charles C. Schwartz is leader of the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team at the USGS Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center in Bozeman, Montana. Albert W. Franzmann, a retired wildlife research veterinarian, was director of International Wildlife Veterinary Service, Inc.From Booklist:
This massive book about the largest deer in the world is an impressive undertaking. Produced by the Washington-based Wildlife Management Institute, responsible in the past for excellent books on U.S. game species, the resulting volume is the most comprehensive ever published on moose. The editors' stated goals were that the book be readable and interesting, and they have succeeded with these expectations--it is fascinating. The opening chapter, "Of Moose and Man," alone holds one's interest so well that most people will end up reading instead of skimming this massive text. Other chapters cover moose evolution and taxonomy, behavior, reproduction and growth, predators, feeding, and hunting. The illustrations, 33 in color, are numerous and mostly excellent, consisting of photographs, drawings, historical paintings, graphs, and maps, all of which clarify the text as well as beautify it. The editors see the book as a "new and improved" informational base from which others can compare and contrast their work and have exceeded this understatement admirably. Although this work may be overkill for some libraries, for those with large natural history collections, it is highly recommended. Nancy Bent
