Biology and conservation of wild felids by David W Macdonald( )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,677 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The editors utilize their fifty years of combined professional experience in the behaviour and ecology of wild felids to draw together a unique network of the world's most respected and knowledgeable experts on cats large and small. For the first time, this interdisciplinary field of research is brought together within a single volume, in a compendious exploration of wild cats that are as intriguing as they are beautiful and charismatic." "Beginning with a complete account of all thirty-six felid species, there follow eight comprehensive review chapters that span all the topics most relevant to felid conservation and biology, including evolution and systematics, felid form and function, genetic applications, behavioural ecology, management of conflict with people and control of international trade in felid species, conservation tools/techniques, ex situ management, and felid diseases. Nineteen detailed case studies then delve deeply into the very best species investigations worldwide, written by leading figures in the field. These chapters portray the unique attributes of the wild felids, describe their fascinating (and conflicting) relationship with humans, and create an unparalleled platform for future research and conservation measures. A final chapter analyses the requirements of, and interdisciplinary approaches to, practical conservation with cutting-edge examples of conservation science and action with implications that go far beyond the cat family." "The wild felids provide examples that will thrill the evolutionary biologist and theoretician, enthral the natural historian, and challenge the conservation biologist and wildlife manager. Anybody interested in evolutionary and behavioural biology, in mammals, in the environment, or in conservation will find much that is new and enriching in this book. It is also an unrivalled source of information for anyone with a serious interest in cats."--Jacket

"The New Encyclopedia of Mammals treats every living species from aardvark to antechinus, and from zebras to zorros." "Each entry gives a systematic account of a species' or group's form, diet, distribution, and behavior. Recent decades have seen great advances in our understanding of our fellow mammals, especially their evolution, social organization, and classification. The New Encyclopedia of Mammals gathers together the fruits of dedicated zoological research worldwide and presents them in a lively, accessible form. With the loss of habitat caused by increasing human demand for land, many species face a struggle for survival; one important function of the Encyclopedia is to document their conservation status and future prospects. The very latest discoveries of new species are also included, making this the most comprehensive and up-to-date resource available." "The text is augmented by numerous illustrations which combine the best of wildlife photography from around the globe with superbly detailed color artwork. Drawings and photos alike put a premium on showing animals in their natural context and displaying typical behaviors. Throughout the book, 'Factfile' panels with distribution maps and scale drawings give readers an instant overview of key data." "This is a completely revised and updated successor to the same author's internationally acclaimed Encyclopedia of Mammals. It is the definitive reference work on mammals for the 21st century."--BOOK JACKET

Colonies of up to 30 cats, Felis catus, which were partially dependent upon man for direct provisioning with food, were recorded on 82% of 775 English farms. They lived at a mean density of 6.3 per km2. Members of one such colony were observed intermittently from 1978-81. These cats' ranging, foraging and scent marking behaviours are described briefly as a background to observations of their social interactions. The adult male's home range was 83 ha, whereas those of three adult females averaged 13.1 (SD 7.2) ha.
