About this book

Detailed assessment of extensive data gathered from the author's ten-year field study of pumas in the Chihuahua Desert of New Mexico, also drawing on other reliable scientific data gathered throughout the puma's geographic range. Chapters examine: the evolutionary and modern history of pumas, their taxonomy, and physical description; puma population dynamics and life history strategies; the implications of puma behaviour and social organization; and the relationships of pumas and their prey.
