  • How the Dog Became the Dog; From Wolves to Our Best Friends
    How the Dog Became the Dog; From Wolves… by Mark Derr

    The domestic dog's descent from the wolf is an accepted part of evolution, but the question of how the wolf became the dog has remained a mystery, and the subject of myth and legend. This title shows that the dog's domestication was both a biological and cultural process. At the end of the last Ice Age the first dogs emerged with their human companions from refuge against the cold. It was only in the eighteenth century that humans began to exercise full control of dog reproduction, life and death, to complete the domestication of the wolf, begun so long ago.

  • DISAPPEARING GIANTS: The North Atlantic Right Whale

    The North Atlantic Right Whale is the most endangered large whale in the oceans today. Fewer tha 350 are left in their breeding and feeding grounds, which extends from Nova Scotia to the Gulf of Mexico. For over 900 years whalers from Europe and the Americas have hunted almost to extinction. By 1935 some scientists suspected that there were fewer than 100 left in the North Atlantic Ocean. This book describes and illustrates an ongoing story of science and rediscovery, of survival and protection and of research, without which we cannot hope to protect the Right Whale's habitat in the Atlantic.

  • Ice Bear: A Natural and Unnatural History of the Polar Bear
    Ice Bear: A Natural and Unnatural… by Kieran Mulvaney

    Ice Bear is the definitive account of an iconic species: its life, its past, and its uncertain future. These beautiful bears are creatures of paradox: Arctic residents whose major problem is not staying warm, but keeping cool. They begin life in a snowdrift; at birth they weigh just twenty ounces. Fully grown, they become massive predators that can walk almost silently, ten feet in length and close to 2,000 pounds. Wandering thousands of miles over the course of a year, they are, above all, creatures of the ice. Without sea ice and the life it supports, polar bears cannot survive. Colour plates, 251pp. 2012
