The Big Cats and Their Fossil Relatives: An Illustrated Guide to Their Evolution and Natural History

by

The Big Cats and Their Fossil Relatives: An Illustrated Guide to Their Evolution and Natural History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this beautifully illustrated natural history that links extinct larger feline species with those still in existence, collaborators Alan Turner and Mauricio Antón weave together the evidence of modern feline behavior with that of the fossil record. Turner's clear, insightful prose and Antón's masterly illustrations combine to offer specialists and newcomers alike an accurate and accessible guide to the evolution of cats.

Review:

"Antón's illustrations...are perhaps the finest ever published. They are intertwined with Turner's cogent text in an eloquent demonstration of the interplay between art and science, paleontology and zoology, predator and prey, ecology and behavior, and anatomy and geography." Dawn A. Adams, Science

Review:

"A well-written, informative, and beautifully illustrated guide to the large cats, both extinct and extant." Blaire Van Valkenburgh, The Quarterly Review of Biology

Review:

"Beautifully illustrated....Clearly, this book has been a labor of love for both author and illustrator." Douglas Palmer, New Scientist

Synopsis:

This text chronicles millions of years of evolution, linking extinct larger feline species with those still living, including lions, tigers, cougars, and cheetahs. It explains how living species and fossil remains make possible the reconstruction of the cat's social and predatory behaviour.
