Hunter and hunted : relationships between carnivores and people by H Kruuk( Book )

Publisher Description (unedited publisher data) Humans have mixed emotions concerning carnivores. We admire them as beautiful hunters, cosset them as pets, and use their pelts and other products in clothing, medicines and cosmetics. However, they are also responsible for killing us and our livestock, carry disease and compete with us for space and food. While some advocate the conservation of predators such as wolves and tigers, others see them as vermin and want them gone. In this book, Hans Kruuk, a life-long naturalist with a passion for predators tells the fascinating story of carnivores and our intricate relationships with them. Illustrated with specially commissioned drawings, it deals with the wild beauty of carnivores and their conservation, but also with furs and medicine, man-eaters and sheep-killers, explaining in simple terms what the role of carnivores is in nature, how this impacts on human lives, our art and literature, how we instinctively respond to them and why

Niko's nature : the life of Niko Tinbergen and his science of animal behaviour by H Kruuk( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and Dutch and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first full-length biography of Niko Tinbergen, lavishly illustrated with many of Niko's own drawings, describes his background in Holland, a naturalists' paradise, and the beginnings of his investigations into the behaviour of birds, fish, and insects. Hans Kruuk also explores Niko's relationship with his colleague and co-Nobelist Konrad Lorenz. These were two men full of contrasts: Niko a charming, self-effacing field man and experimenter; Konrad a flamboyant and egocentric German, always full of new ideas. Niko's Nature goes on to follow Niko's progress in Oxford after the Second World War, where he became the world authority on the behaviour of animals in the wild: his inspiring book The Study of Instinct remains an all-time classic."--BOOK JACKET

Whilst the biological resources of Scotland are influenced primarily through local and national actions, they are also affected by changes taking place beyond national boundaries. To identify such global environmental concems which may impact on nature conservation in Scotland, ITE have been contracted by SNH to provide a brief paper: to inform SNH of the global processes and their impacts and on the current state of research to address issues over which SNH is unlikely to have direct or immediate influence but which are of importance to its long-term monitoring and research activities, its planning and policy formulation and its advisory functions. The following summaries of global environmental concerns provide a brief introduction to the topics of climate change, elevated CO, sea level rise, acid deposition, ultra-violet radiation and other widespread pollutants
