Yellowstone Wolves: Science and Discovery in the World's First National Park
Here, for the first time in a single book, is the incredible story of the wolves’ return to Yellowstone National Park as told by Doug Smith, co-editor Dan Stahler, Erin Stahler, Matt Metz, Kira Cassidy and the very people responsible for their reintroduction, study, and management. Anchored in what we have learned from Yellowstone, highlighting the unique blend of research techniques that have given us this knowledge, and addressing the major issues that wolves still face today, this book is as wide-ranging and awe-inspiring as the Yellowstone restoration effort itself. We learn about individual wolves, population dynamics, wolf-prey relationships, genetics, disease, management and policy, newly studied behaviors and interactions with other species, and the rippling ecosystem effects wolves have had on Yellowstone’s wild and rare landscape. Perhaps most importantly of all, the book also offers solutions to ongoing controversies and debates. Hardcover, 339 pages, 11 1/2" by 9"
