About this book

Mel and Fiona Sunquist have spent more than a decade gathering information about cats from every available source, including scientific papers, descriptions of hunts, archeological findings, observations by naturalists and travelers, government reports and organisation newsletters. Combining it with their own experiences observing wild cats around the world, the Sunquists have created the most comprehensive reference on felids available. Each of their accounts of the 36 species contains a description of the cat, including human interactions with it, detailed data on its distribution, ecology and behaviour, status in the wild, and efforts to conserve it.
