A wide-ranging view of animals adapted to their environments
Edited by a herpetologist (curator of the Central Park Wildlife Center, Wildlife Conservation Society) and an animal behaviorist (who also is a well-established science writer), and written by the editors and six other scientists, this book is finding acceptance as an adjunct to classroom science teaching. More than just a pretty coffee table book, The Fight for Survival describes how animals--especially rare or endangered species--interact with each other and their environments.
