Description: The northern Rocky Mountains described in this book extend over a vast area from British Columbia's Peace River down to the Colorado - New Mexico border.
The northern Rocky Mountains described in this book extend over a vast area from British Columbia's Peace River down to the Colorado'New Mexico border in the south. Providing scientists and amateur naturalists alike with immense diversity in landform, climate, and vegetation, the area abounds with a wide variety of wildlife and birds.
Rocky Mountain Wildlife is primarily a reference work intended for readers requiring a compact, easy-to-read compendium of information on the area's ecology, its spectacular mammals, their habitats, social organization, distribution, and migratory patterns.
The photographs are the selection of two seasoned field photographers: biologist David Hancock and Brian Wolitski - one of the Rockies' most experienced and consummate picture takers.
The natural history folios give a succinct textual summary and an extensive visual representation of each major species of Rocky Mountain mammals. The emphasis here is to show the life habits through photography.
