Summary
When Maurice Hornocker began the first long-term study of cougars in the Idaho wilderness in 1964, little was known about this large cat. He and conservationist Sharon Negri bring together the diverse perspectives of twenty scientists to provide the fullest account of the cougar's ecology, behavior, and genetics; its role as a top predator; and its conservation needs.--[book jacket]
