Life in the Cold: An Introduction to Winter Ecology

by

Life in the Cold: An Introduction to Winter Ecology Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A third edition of a classic work on cold climate ecosystems, updated with a new chapter on mammals and birds.

Synopsis:

Peter Marchand believes that winter is unfairly misunderstood, a season associated with "stillness, darkness, and death". Yet as each spring affirms, living things somehow manage to reappear. Since 1987, when the first edition appeared and was chosen by Library Journal as one of the year's 101 Best Sci-Tech Books, Marchand has been treating thousands of readers to a winter world that is very much alive. Now in this enlarged third edition, he offers a brand new chapter adding complete information on three major animal groups: northern cervids (deer, elk, moose, and caribou); semiaquatic mammals (beaver, otter, mink, and muskrat); and gallinaceous birds (grouse and ptarmigan). Experts and novices alike will find Life in the Cold indispensable and enjoyable.
