In the Country of Gazelles

In the Country of Gazelles
de Fritz R. Walther(Ed. Indiana University Press) Isbn : 025336325X
26.56 €
Walther's affection for gazelles developed when he toured the Dresden Zoo as a lad, but his fieldwork in Africa did not start until decades later, in 1965, after serving in World War II and studying and teaching in Europe and the U.S. Walther's focus is on animal behavior, and his passion for these animals lends his scientific observations a panache not always found in such strict observational studies. For a man who spent years in the Serengeti, he finds lions dull creatures (although they totally captured his interest when he accidently wandered into a pride while surveying), and his discussion of his encounters is perfunctory. But his accounts of the mating, grazing, territorializing, and fleet-footed departures of Grant's gazelles, zebras, dik-diks, and his favorite, Tommys (Thompson's...

Albatrosses And Petrels Across The World: Procellariidae

Albatrosses And Petrels Across The World: Procellariidae
de Michael Brooke(Ed. Oxford University Press) Isbn : 0198501250
129.94 €
Visiting all the world's seas, the 125 species of albatross and petrel are the most oceanic and widespread of all seabirds. The nesting islands tenanted by these remarkable birds include some of the remotest atolls and some of the bleakest ice-bound Antarctic islands on the planet. Despite their penchant for the remote, petrels are now well studied ashore during breeding and, thanks to the rapid development of satellite tracking and similar techniques, when they roam the high seas. In this comprehensive and elegantly written book, Michael Brooke, who has visited some 40 countries in pursuit of birds, has brought together a wealth of information on all aspects of the biology of the species. He considers why Short-tailed Shearwaters nesting off Australia make regular 10,000 km round trips to...
