About this book

Carnivores are mammals that hunt and eat other animals, mostly herbivorous mammals. Humans share a long history with carnivores. We fear carnivores as predators, revile them as competitors, exploit them for their fur, or admire them for their grace and beauty.

This book, the fifth of six volumes on the mammals of BC, provides comprehensive, up-to-date information on the 21 species of wild terrestrial carnivores in the province.The species covered include: Dogs (Canids) - Coyote, Grey Wolf, Red Fox; Bears (Ursids) - American Black Bear, Grizzly Bear; Raccoons (Procyonids) - Northern Raccoon; Weasels and relatives (Mustelids) - Sea Otter, Wolverine, Northern River Otter, American Marten, Fisher, Ermine, Longtailed Weasel, Least Weasel, American Mink, American Badger; Skunks (Mephitids) - Striped Skunk, Western Spotted Skunk; Cats (Felids) - Cougar, Canada Lynx, Bobcat.

"Carnivores of British Columbia" describes each species, with illustrations of whole animals and skulls. For each species, it discusses distribution and habitat, feeding ecology, social behaviour, reproduction, issues around health and mortality, abundance, human uses, conservation and management. This book will be an important educational reference for the general public, schools, naturalists and wildlife biologists.
