Description:

1999 1st edition. 8vo (143 x 222mm). Ppxx,192. Colour and b/w photographs. Pictorial paper-covered boards. Slight use but very good in slightly spine-faded dust-wrapper. Saroj Raj Choudhury's career was with the Orissa Forestry Service. Starting as a Forest Officer, he later became the Orissa Government Service's first Wildlife Conservation Officer, progressing on to Senior Research Officer at the Forest Research Institute, and finally, Field Director of the Similipal Tiger Reserve. Choudhury was a leading thinker in the field and contributed a number of important innovations, "including capturing wild tuskers using tranquilizers, and the pug-mark method of counting tigers now used throughout India. The first country-wide census [of tigers] was carried out during 1972 under Mr. Choudhury's supervision." In this book, Choudhury gives a blow by blow account of his observations of one particular tigress from which he was able to draw a number of scientifically important conclusions. This book is also a good read. Chapters include: The foundling - Khairi; Khairi's life pattern; Last days of Khairi; Save the world; Khairi's contribution to pheremone research, by R.L. Brahmachary.
