Item description for Kalahari Hyenas : Comparative Behavioral Ecology of Two Species by M. G. L. Mills...
This fascinating book, originally published in 1990 and now available again from The Blackburn Press, focuses on a comparison of the feeding ecology and social systems of the brown and spotted hyenas.
Set in the semi-arid region of the Kalahari, the book examines roles and interactions of the two species in this finely balanced ecosystem and highlights the factors and mechanisms responsible for regulating the populations. The hyenas' interactions with other large carnivores are also explored and this too offers novel insights as to their natural behavior.
Extracts from the author's field notes form a fascinating feature of the text and convey all the thrill and anticipation of observing these remarkable animals in their own habitat.
