While human activities are accelerating the depletion and extinction of species, mammals, as predators, are becoming particularly at risk since many of their populations are already in decline as a result of loss of habitat, persecution as competitors, sport hunting, and exploitation for their fur. This book examines whether recent advances in techniques and understanding can benefit our communal knowledge of these threatened and endangered species. Numerous case studies highlight the recent advances in the subject. Particular emphasis is placed upon the adaptations shown by predatory mammals, the tactics exhibited while hunting, and how the phenomenon of predation has led to conflicts between man and beast.
