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

18 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and French and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
Otters : ecology, behaviour, and conservation by H Kruuk( Book )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Otters are highly charismatic and popular animals of very considerable concern to conservationists worldwide. Written by the pre-eminent authority in the field, this book builds on the reputation of the author's landmark monograph of the European otter, Wild Otters (OUP, 1995). Furthermore, its broader scope to include all species of otter in North America as well as Europe and elsewhere leads to a deeper synthesis that greatly expands the book's overall relevance and potential readership. Aimed at naturalists, scientists and conservationists, its personal style and generously illustrated text will appeal to amateurs and professionals alike. It emphasizes recent research and conservation management initiatives for all 13 species of otter worldwide, incorporates recent molecular research on taxonomy and population genetics, and discusses the wider implications of otter studies for ecology and conservation biology. As well as enchanting direct observations of the animals, there is guidance about how and where to watch and study them. From otters in the British and American lakes and rivers, to sea otters in the Pacific Ocean, giant otters in the Amazon and other species in Africa and Asia, this book provides an engaging approach to their fascinating existence, to the science needed to understand it, and to the very real threats to their survival

Global environmental concerns in Scotland : an overview by ITE by L. A Boorman( Book )

2 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in Undetermined and English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
