One of the coolest books I've ever seen. -- g Laden's Science Blog

One of the coolest books I've ever seen. -- Greg Laden's Science Blog

Spectacular full-color illustrations by Barrett ("Mammals of Europe"), sometimes showing customary behaviors or including depictions of cubs, accompany each entry and beautifully clarify textual descriptions. . . . Currently the most up-to-date subject guide available. -- "Library Journal

A huge undertaking designed to present the current state of knowledge about each of these species, including some exceedingly rare ones. -- "Library Journal

Biologist Hunter has produced a beautifully illustrated, concise guide to all 245 terrestrial carnivores. -- "Choice

The book is packed with information about carnivores and is a worthy addition to anyone's bookshelf. Highly recommended!--Timothy McDougald "Afarensis blog "

"Carnivores of the World" is a comprehensive field guide to all 245 species of terrestrial carnivores--everything from tiny least weasels to gigantic polar bears. Though few will use this book as an actual field guide, it is packed with the natural history of each species. You'll learn of carnivores you've never heard of (servals, caracals and genets) as well as those that are more familiar (lions, tigers and bears). And each species account is filled with details including information on diet, behavior and reproduction.--Scott Shalaway "Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "

This title could easily be used as a standalone reference for specialists and academics in the fields of biology and conservation. General audiences and students will also enjoy it for its beautiful illustrations and accessible species accounts.--Charles Leck "American Reference Books Annual "

The thing that makes this book a 'must' is . . . its two-page/subject organization. Choose your carnivore and then turn to that page--the data is on your left and the image is on the right. It's just that simple. So, who would want a book like this? Well, certainly sportsman. . . . Kids would love it too. (What youngster wouldn't get a kick out of looking up the Palawan Stink Badger or studying a Grizzly skull?) It would make for an ideal field guide for birders, lepidopterists, guides, campers, backyard birders ('What on earth was that thing?') fresh water fishermen, farmers.--Alan Speakman "Ebirdseed.com "
