|The Eurasian Red Squirrel|
Stefan Bosch and Peter Lurz.
This is a comprehensive and well illustrated book which I feel has been long overdue. It is clearly written and is an excellent form of reference and general interest which will appeal to all readers, from professional ecologists to those who are just interested in understanding more about this popular and endangered mammal.
Chapters cover Taxonomy, Distribution, Body form and function, Reproduction and development, Behaviour, Ecology, Threats and conservation, Methods and research, Squirrels and people, plus an extensive Bibliography.
Eurasian red squirrels have an innate appeal and are one of
our most popular mammal species. They live in forests, share
our parks and gardens and mesmerise us with their cute, captivating and endearing behaviour.
|Inside chapter 3 - Body form and function|
The detailed and illustrated chapters provide a window into the hidden life of red squirrels and their fascinating ecology, population dynamics and behaviour.
|Inside chapter 7 - Threats and conservation|
The latter has been responsible for devastating population declines of native red squirrels in the UK, Ireland and Italy and is likely to invade Switzerland and France in the near future.
