  • Conservation and Management of Marine Mammals49% OFF
    Conservation and Management of Marine… -

    During the 1960's through to the 80's, the public awareness and interest in marine mammals and their conservation had a marked beneficial effect on the numbers of whales, seals, dolphins and manatees killed for commercial purposes. Other serious threats to their existence are now widely recognised however - incidental kills during fishing, degradation of habitat, pollution and collision with vessels to name a few. The various contributors to this book review the history, current status and implications of marine mammal legislation, the interactions of marine mammals with fisheries and the current whaling debate. They evaluate recent efforts directed at the Florida manatee, the Hawaiian monk seal the North Atlantic right whale and other endangered species.

  • 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.
