...very exhaustive work...All that is known about this elusive carnivore is contained here...accessible while being strictly scientific. ( Michel Cuisin MAMMALIA)From the Publisher:
Bobcat: Master of Survival tells the story of the most adaptable and resilient wild feline in the world. While half the wild cat species worldwide are in danger, the bobcat is thriving, even expanding its range in North America. Why are bobcats flourishing when so many other wild felines are scientists apply the latest in wildlife research technology to probe this diminutive predator's habits and behavior. The reader is invited inside the bobcat's world to see how they hunt, kill prey, raise their young, coexist with humans, and deftly navigate the endless obstacles to survival.
The bobcat is both the most studied and the most exploited wild feline in the world. Millions have been killed for the fur trade. They were the focus of major controversy in the 1970s that transformed international conservation of wild felines. The book discusses how economics and politics play a far greater role in bobcat management and conservation than does science. Bobcat is the most comprehensive and up-to-date book on the natural history and management of bobcats to appear in 40 years.

Summary: "The book provides a fairly exhaustive look at how the cats hunt, kill, breed and die - and how they coexist with humans, perhaps their only obstacle. . Maybe the cat's air of mystery makes Hansen's first-person accounts of bobcat encounters particularly compelling."-- The ArizonaRepublic. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0195183037
