Predators and Predation - the Struggle for Life in the Animal World

By Pierre Pfeffer

U. K.: Facts on File, 1989 An excellent copy of this book. 419 very clean pages. The jacket is also in excellent condition. Small 'p' stamped to the underside closed page edge. Small 'dusty' mark to bottom underside corner. - This book presents an unparalleled survey of one of nature's most remarkable phenomena; the way in which species preserve themselves and each other by feeding off each other. Comprising alphabetically arranged entries on more than 500 predators - from amoebas to sperm whales - this encyclopedic reference work provides clear, detailed answers to such intriguing questions as - Which animals are predators? How do they trap their prey? Are they generalists, who can choose from a variety of prey, or specialists, limited in their selection? How do they kill and ingest? Do they in turn become the prey of other predators? - This is an indespensable reference book for both amateur and professional naturalists and ecologists. It offers new insights into the essential role predation plays in the ecosystem, showing how it ensures the survival not only of the hunters but of the hunted as well. Whether you approach this fascinating book as an experienced researcher or as a casual browser, it is likely to dispel any prejudices you hold about the cruelty and arbitrariness of nature, and to impart a lasting appreciation of the justice of natural law. - complied by a team of scientists.

By Norman Myers, Foreword By Kenneth E. Boulding

London: Robertson McCarta, 1990 Binding is black cloth with silver lettering on the spine; 190 pages including the index. Global warming and lightning political change, supertechnology and famine, chaos theory and the Gaia hypothesis - without doubt, the world of tomorrow will be radically different from that of today. Change is the one thing we can be sure of - environmentally, politically, socially, forces are at work that will ripple through the lives of all creatures on the planet. How far do we understand these processes and the triggers of change? How will they interact, to impact on our lives sooner than we expect? What kind of future world do we want, and how can we exerecise this choice? Do we indeed have a future? Here, for the first time, is a book that addresses these questions in a planetary context. Future Worlds provides a far-sighted, challenging, and sharply focused picture of present forces for change, likely outcomes with their mulitple interplays, and the routes to a sustainable and vital future. We have the skills, and the knowledge, to take these paths. But do we have the wisdom to choose and the courage to avoid delay? With its unique graphics, maps of regional impacts and features on the dynamics of change and how events can take us by surprise, Future Worlds marks a turning point in human perception - amd makes an important contribution to our efforts to shape a more holistic future.
