About this book

Provides an exhaustive overview of the ecosystems of Connecticut, its plants and animals, and the ecological links among the state's wildlife and their habitats - from butterflies to red foxes, jellyfish to double-crested cormorants, poison ivy to phytoplankton. It carefully traces Connecticut's daily, seasonal, annual, and long-term cycles, which range from the dynamics of natural communities to patterns of reproduction and behaviour in major groups of organisms. Whether looking at individual species or broad ecosystems, Hammerson' s conservationist perspective shines in Connecticut Wildlife.
