About this title

Synopsis:

A study based on the work of wildlife biologist Patricia Moehlman provides a close-up look at the world of the African jackal, exploring the habitat, behavior, life cycle, and characteristics of this misunderstood canine.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-For a third time, Pringle takes readers into the unique world of a behavioral ecologist; for the first time, his subject is a woman. Patricia Moehlman will bring Jane Goodall to mind, and indeed, Moehlman's jackal studies began under the tutelage of that renowned scientist. Her life, including her childhood, is highlighted as it relates to her career. The text and photographs speak in unison of Moehlman's affection and respect for jackals and of her fascination with their behavior. More than another book on animal behavior, this one is about a scientist discussing her field-how animal behavior is affected by environment, and how she conducts her studies and reaches conclusions. Although this will be shelved with the animal books, it's also a high-interest biography or career guide.
