Existing megaherbivores (elephants, rhinos, hippos and giraffes) are placed in the context of the more numerous species which occurred worldwide until the end of the last Ice Age. Knowledge of the ecology of surviving species is used to analyse the cause of the extinctions. The information and ideas contained in this book are of crucial importance to all concerned with halting the rapidly worsening conservation status of remaining elephant and rhinoceros species, and carries a wider message for those concerned with the effects of man on ecosystem processes.
