The Oxford anthology of Indian wildlife: volume II - watching and conserving

The last century has witnessed a remarkable change in attitudes to wildlife, with the focus shifting from conquest for slaughter towards conservation. The new class of naturalists gives equal attention to smaller animals and trees, as evident in the pieces on the blackbuck, the wild dog, the turtle, the cobra, and the comings and goings at a waterhole in summer. This book documents new trends in the study of animal behaviour and life, in the accounts of Valmik Thapar and R Sukumar which detail the family life of tigers and elephants.
