Bonobo : the forgotten ape by F. B. M. de Waal( Book )

21 editions published between 1997 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 1,631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most people have never heard of the bonobo, an intriguing member of the great ape family, despite the fact that bonobos are as close to us as their much better known relatives, the chimpanzees. Scientists are only beginning to explore the social life of the bonobo. Whereas chimpanzees are known for male power politics, cooperative hunting, and intergroup warfare, bonobo society is egalitarian and peaceful. One major distinction of the bonobo seems to be sensitivity to others. Now, two world-renowned experts in their fields, primatologist Frans de Waal and wildlife photographer Frans Lanting, have joined to celebrate this wonderful and little-known creature. Theirs is the first extended profile of the bonobo for the general reader. It presents the most up-to-date information on the species, including comparative data from zoo populations and from the field and interviews with leading bonobo experts. This is a book for all primate-watchers, amateur and specialist, for anyone interested in the origin of our own species, and for those studying evolution or gender relations

Penguin by Frans Lanting( Book )

28 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Penguin is a celebration of the nature and beauty of penguins as expressed through the exquisite images and unique personal stories of master photographer and naturalist Frans Lanting. In a remarkable portfolio of photographs made during three expeditions to the icy kingdoms of penguins, he reveals both the amazing natural history and the irresistible appeal of the most human of birds. He first traveled to isolated slivers of land in the Falkland Islands to cover the lives of "little penguins"--Rock-hoppers, Magellanics, and gentoos - and then made a rare circumnavigation of South Georgia by yacht, going ashore to camp among colonies of king penguins and capture the summer rush of birds breeding and feeding before the harsh deprivations of winter set in. Finally he flew to the edge of Antarctica and camped on the sea ice for a month to document the epic life story of the emperor penguin, which survives at the outer limits of life. More than 110 photographs illustrate this moving portrayal of the birds many people feel they already know - but will see in a powerful new perspective through Frans Lanting's eyes"--Publisher's description

Okavango : Africa's last eden by Frans Lanting( Book )

23 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Okavango is the first major celebration in text and photographs of Africa's last Eden. More than 130 extraordinary photographs, taken during a year-long assignment in the region by award-winning photographer and naturalist Frans Lanting, capture with powerful immediacy the beauty and drama of Africa's breathtaking Okavango Delta. Spreading over 8,600 square miles, this vast wetland in the heart of the Kalahari supports an unparalleled diversity of wildlife. From its origins in the highlands of Angola, the Okavango River descends to the near-desert of northern Botswana, where it fans out as the world's largest inland delta; an ecosystem of a size and complexity rivaling any on earth, a rare place where desert and swamp dwellers meet. Hippos, crocodiles, zebra, impalas, buffalo, giraffe, lions, hyenas, and the continent's largest unharassed elephant population find refuge and replenishment in the seasonal ebb and flow of fresh water into the delta. Together, Lanting's words and images tell of the dynamic movement of water throughout the year and of the rhythms of flora and fauna in response to it; of the spectacular array of wild creatures; of the people who live in this frontier region; and, finally, in a thoughtful epilogue, of the difficult environmental challenges faced by this complex natural system and its hopeful future as a place where Africa's free-roaming wildlife stands a chance of surviving intact into the twenty-first century. No other photographer has captured the variety of Africa's wildlife and the richness of its landscape with such vividness, sympathy, and skill. Okavango is an unforgettable portrait of Africa's remarkable primeval oasis."--Jacket
