A detailed account of cheetah social behaviour and ecology, based on a decade of field research. Compared to other large cats, cheetahs have an unusual breeding system; some live in groups (like lions) whilst others are solitary (like tigers). In this work, the author seeks to answer many questions on the causes of social behaviour, through observations on the costs and benefits of group living. Drawing comparisons with other cat species, he produces many surprising findings, and offers new perspectives on conservation efforts. An important work on a beautiful and endangered species.
