New: The Biology and Conservation of Wild Felids

The Biology and Conservation of Wild FelidsThis is the sister volume to Macdonald and Sillero-Zubiri’s landmark Biology and Conservation of Wild CanidsMacdonald and Loveridge draw together the world’s foremost experts on all 36 felid species to give a comprehensive account of felid conservation science, evolution and systematics, felid form and function, genetic applications, behavioural ecology, management of species that come into conflict with people and control of international trade in felid species, conservation tools/techniques, ex situ management, and felid diseases. You can also buy the two volumes in single set.

An indispensable foundation for theoretician and practitioner alike, it sets the agenda for the next decade of felid biology and conservation. The editors utilize their 50 years of combined experience in professional engagement with the behaviour and ecology of wild felids to draw together a unique network of the world’s most respected and knowledgeable experts. For the first time, this inter-disciplinary research programme is brought together within a single volume which portrays the unique attributes of the wild felids, describe their fascinating (and conflicting) relationship with humans, and create an unparalleled platform for future research and conservation measures.
A final chapter analyses the requirements of, and inter-disciplinary approaches to, practical conservation with cutting-edge examples of conservation science and action that go far beyond the cat family.
