The way of the tiger: natural history and conservation of the endangered big cat

"The way of the Tiger" is an outstanding primer; it is a scientist's explanation - to a popular audience - of the natural history and conservation of one of the planet's most charismatic animals.

Tigers have inspired human cultures through the ages with their power and beauty. The author-whose path breaking studies on wild tigers began in the 1980s - looks at this human fascination for tigers, and then goes on to examine social and predatory behaviour in wild tigers; evolution and genetics; research and census methods; threats, past and present, to the existence of this endangered mega-carnivore; and various conservation actions necessary to reverse the decline of tigers.
