Description

From the stunning seascapes of Acadia to the desert of Death Valley, America's national parks are home to hundreds of species of wild mammals. Captured in vivid photographs, both the mammals and the parks are revealed in this breathtaking book written by two leading experts -- one a forester and the other a zoologist.

The first section of the book describes the history and landscape of each park, and gives an overview of conservation issues and tips on sighting particular animals. The second section provides a thorough description of each type of mammal, including physical characteristics, behavior, range, and feeding habits. Each entry outlines the environmental issues affecting the populations.

Providing a rare glimpse into the habits and habitats of mammals in all fifty-six national parks, Mammals of the National Parks captures the wonder and beauty of our national treasures.
