Dear TAXACOM-L subscriber:

This is to inform you that:

Coyotes : Biology, Behavior and Management  by Dr. Marc Bekoff 

will be available again shortly from The Blackburn Press.

Here reprinted, this is a classic of the canid literature.

Originally published in 1978 "Coyotes : Biology, Behavior and Management" pulled together much disparate research in coyote evolution, taxonomy, reproduction, communication, behavioral development, population dynamics, ethology and ecological studies in the Southwest, Minnesota, Iowa, New England and Wyoming as well as studies on livestock damage and research on other canids.

"At its best in those chapters that draw together widely dispersed information". Science 202, pp. 424.

"The book presents an abundance of useful tabular material and cites a great majority of the most significant literature. It is a work that no serious student of the subject can afford to be without". BioScience 29, pp. 312.

"A most welcome comprehensive review of coyote research and an introduction to the far-flung literature". Journal of Mammalogy, 60, pp. 658.

"I recommend this book to everyone interested in coyotes and the current controversies surrounding this extremely successful predator. A thorough understanding of this animal is crucial and this book is surely a step in the right direction". J. Wildlife Management 43, pp. 279.

Marc Bekoff is Professor of Biology at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and is a Fellow of the Animal Behavior Society and a former Guggenheim Fellow. He recently was awarded the Exemplar Award from the Animal Behavior Society for major long-term contributions to the field of animal behavior. 
This classic title contains a lucid description and summary of basic dendrochronology, especially its application to climatic reconstructions that are now a highly valued and objective tool for putting future climatic changes in perspective with past climatic history for up to several thousand years.
