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.
