Behaviour and ecology of riparian mammals( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many mammals, such as otters, live in close association with rivers and streams, feeding in them, or using them as a place of safety or means of escape from predators. The distinct adaptations that riparian mammals have evolved in order to live in these environments also handicap them for living elsewhere. They are therefore threatened by alterations to their environment. In recent years our rivers have become highly polluted, and with bankside modifications for agriculture and forestry, enhanced or decreased water flow, and use for recreation, they become less and less suitable for these highly specialized animals. This 1998 book looks at the habitat utilization, adaptation, feeding ecology and conservation status of a range of riparian mammals, and will give insights into the problems facing these fascinating animals, and how they might be overcome

The exploitation of mammal populations by Victoria J Taylor( Book )

9 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historically mankind has exploited mammalian populations in their wild and domesticated forms. Today as increasing human populations demand more space and resources, the exploitation of mammals for commercial gain, subsistence, conservation and control is stimulating necessary debate on the morality, sustainability and welfare implications of a continuing exploitative relationship. The Exploitation of Mammal Populations presents a selection of peer-reviewed and edited papers from a conference jointly organized by the Universities' Federation for Animal Welfare (UFAW) and the Mammal Society which includes contributions from an international array of wildlife biologists, ecologists and conservationists. In 22 chapters the issues involved in harvesting, hunting, sustainable trade and ecotourism are explored and set in the context of past and present mammal exploitation. The resulting volume provides a stimulating and wide-ranging review of current attitudes to mammal exploitation which will be of interest to zoologists, ecologists, animal behaviourists, wildlife managers, conservation biologists and campaigners

Wild horses by Michael Bright( Book )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book shows you the beauty, speed and power of these graceful creatures and their relatives, with 190 exciting pictures. You can investigate the wild world of feral horses such as the mustangs of America, Australian brumbies, the white horses of the Carmargue in France, and many more. Special features focus on particular aspects of equine existence, such as the birth of a foal or the migration of a herd of zebras. Myth boxes introduce folk tales and legends about horses from diverse cultures. There are stunning wildlife photographs, plus illustrations and detailed cross-sections. Horses, zebras and other equids roam free on the world's grasslands. Both the native populations and the feral horses - the descendants of domesticated breeds - have adapted to the lives they lead. You can discover, for example, how a zebra's stripes protect it against the biting tsetse fly, and how the Namib desert horse can survive without water for much longer than the horses it is believed to be descended from. Amazing wildlife photography takes you right into the heart of the herd, while the text explains clearly what is going on, and why
