by Mario Melletti, Ecology Conservation And Management Of Wild Pigs And Peccaries Book available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Ecology Conservation And Management Of Wild Pigs And Peccaries books, Wild pigs inhabit vast areas in Europe, Southern Asia and Africa, and have been introduced in North and South America, while feral pigs are widespread in Australia and New Zealand. Many wild pig species are threatened with extinction, but Eurasian wild boar populations, however, are increasing in many regions. Covering all wild pig and peccary species, the Suidae and Tayassuidae families, this comprehensive review presents new information about the evolution, taxonomy and domestication of wild pigs and peccaries alongside novel case studies on conservation activities and management. One hundred leading experts from twenty five countries synthesise understanding of this group of species; discussing current research, and gaps in the knowledge of researchers, conservation biologists, zoologists, wildlife managers and students. This beautifully illustrated reference includes the long history of interactions between wild pigs and humans, the benefits some species have brought us and their role and impact on natural ecosystems.

Get rid of it!" my aunt barked when she spied the garter snake latched onto my six-year-old arm. I then responded with, "No!" That's when everyone went silent until my aunt spoke out once again, "What do you mean 'no'? Why not?" As the tears continued to stream down my face, I answered back through an exaggerated and convulsing huff, "Because I love it!" It was then that Jeff Corwin was hooked. Whether it's serpents, lizards, crocs, or frogs, or any number of furry creatures, Jeff has spent decades learning-- and educating-- about the world's most diverse ecosystems and their inhabitants. Travel with him now through Arizona, Africa, Costa Rica, and Venezuela to encounter those who are familiar-- coyotes, elephants, anteaters, and crocodiles-- and meet those who aren't-- the vinegaroon, which keeps out of harm's way by gagging and repelling potential predators with caustic fumes; painted dogs, which allow only one monogamous pair within the clan to breed; the omnivorous kinkajou, which helps propagate the enormous strangler fig tree; and capybaras, the world's largest rodents, who happen to be excellent swimmers. Bear witness to the codependency of all these creatures on either the plants that surround them or each other, and look behind the scenes to see Jeff's coming of age in the world of biodiversity. Some of the fabulous creatures in these pages are in danger of becoming extinct, while all carry a vital role in maintaining these ecosystems. Without the interplay of predator, prey, and symbiotic communalism, the world as we know it would be a vastly different place.
