DESCRIPTION What makes tigers unique among our planet's dozens of cat species? The Concise Book of Tigers, by award-winning writer-naturalist and historian Lochlainn Seabrook, readily answers this and many other questions concerning these magnificent felines! Packed with fascinating details that are often overlooked by other natural history writers, this brief but informative work, on what the author calls “tigerology,” contains 11 in-depth chapters that cover the complete ecology and life history of tigers. Topics include the basics of tiger science (vision, hearing, coloration, vocalizations, etc.); tigers in superstition, religion, and literature; where to see tigers; how to identify them; and tiger and habitat conservation. The book also contains a detailed field guide of the currently recognized 12 tiger subspecies (six living, six extinct) found across Eurasia, with each entry listing the subspecies' common and scientific names, identifying traits, distribution, habitat, feeding and hunting habits, enemies, population, life span, conservation status, and comments by the author. Densely illustrated with 150 color photos and black-and-white drawings, Col. Seabrook also includes a complete list of the world’s 41 felids, an extensive bibliography (with suggested reading material), and a comprehensive index of every cat referenced in the book. Written in the author's usual lucid and compact yet educational style, this family friendly Guide to Nature's Most Remarkable Cats is a must-have for tiger lovers, tiger-watchers, and animal lovers in general. A wonderfully unique addition to the nature writing genre, with its emphasis on tiger conservancy, The Concise Book of Tigers is a treasure trove for tigriphiles and an ideal title for gift shops at tiger centers, tiger sanctuaries, wildlife reserves, zoos, and natural history museums. Available in paperback and hardcover. A former zoo keeper, big cat handler, ranch hand, and hunting guide, outdoorsman Lochlainn Seabrook has written and edited nearly 100 books ranging in scope from science and nature to history and religion. He is the author of the bestselling companion volume The Concise Book of Owls, as well as the popular monumental work North America's Amazing Mammals: An Encyclopedia for the Whole Family.
