About this book

Please note: also available as part of a 2-volume set.

The definitive book on the dog family, dealing with many aspects of the biology and conservation of wolves, dogs, jackals and foxes and synthesising the far-reaching research carried out over the last 20 years. It includes a complete account of all 36 species, with an emphasis on topics most relevant to conservation science – evolution and systematics, behavioural ecology, population genetics, diseases, conflict and control of troublesome species, and conservation tools. It focuses particularly on protection of the most threatened Canid species, such as the red wolf, African wild dog, Ethipian wolf, Island fox and Darwin's fox.

Media reviews

As would be expected from such a renowned academic stable, this book represents another first class, definitive publication in their ever-growing list of 'must have' publications. It is exceptionally well researched and well presented throughout, although it is certainly not a coffee table book, and is edited by two of Europe's leading canid workers.
