About this book

Until the mid-19th century, North America's bison were among the most numerous large mammals on Earth. Yet within the space of ten years, they were virtually wiped out by the hunters and soldiers of the new frontier. The species is now more numerous, but survives only in separate isolated populations in public reserves. This book reviews a five-year study in one of these, the Badlands National Park in South Dakota, and illustrates the many problems encountered in the management of populations of large animals.
`Conservation needs this kind of intensive research...This book is a fine description of it.' Colin Tudge, New Scientist
