Description
  • Written by the pre-eminent authority in the field
  • Builds on the reputation of Wild Otters, providing a fully revised, comprehensive and affordable successor
  • Emphasises recent research and conservation management initiatives for all 13 species of otter worldwide
  • Incorporates recent molecular research on taxonomy and population genetics
  • Discusses the wider implications of otter studies for ecology and conservation management
New to this edition
  • Based on Kruuk: Wild Otters. Complete re-write, with revision, updating of the previous material on Eurasian otters, some reductions of less important results. Expansion to include research on all twelve other otter species worldwide, and their evolution. In addition, coverage of research on energetics, molecular studies and genetics, diseases, and recent conservation problems such as the sequential megafauna collapse in the Pacific ocean.

Readership: An accessible monograph for graduate students and researchers, primarily behavioural ecologists, zoologists and conservation biologists. A significant secondary market exists amongst the large amateur naturalist community.
