This is the first and currently only field guide to these fascinating animals. It is designed to be small enough to fit into a coat pocket or rucksack and taken into the field.
Wild Boar Sign: A Field Guide illustrates, with professional photographs, actual wild boar field signs, combined with descriptive text. It will be an invaluable guide for those wishing to learn more about the species. It is written by an acknowledged expert in wild boars.
Wild boars are a fascinating animal to study. They impact on so many issues related to our countryside but are also relevant to town dwellers as wild boars can become urbanised and find food from refuge bins and vegetable plots.
Wild boars became extinct from Britain by overhunting and habitat loss several hundred years ago. The animals found in Britain today are the descendents of escaped farm stock brought in from continental Europe.
The daily routine of wild boars is evidenced by a tell-tale array of field signs. Wild Boar Sign: A Field Guide arranges these signs in the order that they occur, starting from the identification of day nests, through to grooming sites and feeding areas. It also describes the signs that reflect sexual behaviour; notching posts for the males and farrowing nests for the sows.
The aim of Wild Boar Sign: A Field Guide is to help us understand, by interpreting wild boar field signs, a lot more about this much maligned but fascinating and charismatic animal.
