Meerkat Manor: Flower of the Kalahari
by: Clutton-Brock, Tim

The true-life story of Flower, the heroine of the successful Meerkat Manor series and the dominant female of Whiskers group. It is the story of Flower's birth to Holly, the group's breeding female who was later replaced by her two nieces in turn, until Whiskers was at risk of being driven from its range by powerful neighbors. It is the story of how Flower was banished from the group by one of them and was only saved from certain death by her cousin's sudden demise. Finally, it is the story of how Flower returned to the group and acquired the dominant position herself, tried to breed and failed, and then, in the nick of time, suppressed her competitors and reared three successive litters of pups, saving herself and her group from losing their range to their rivals and securing her position as queen of Whiskers - and of all she surveys. Meerkat Manor not only describes what meerkats do but explains why they do it, providing important insights into the working of other animal societies and the evolution of co-operative and competitive behaviour in other animals, including humans.240 pages, Color photos

Nine-Banded Armadillo: A Natural History
by: Loughry, W.J. & McDonogh, Colleen

Biologists W. J. Loughry and Colleen M. McDonough have studied the nine-banded armadillo (Dasypus novemcinctus) for more than twenty years. Their richly illustrated book offers the first comprehensive review of everything scientists know about this unique animal. Engaging both scientists and a broader public, Loughry and McDonough describe the armadillo’s anatomy and physiology and all aspects of its ecology, behavior, and evolution. They also compare the nine-banded armadillo with twenty or so other, related species. The authors pay special attention to three key features of armadillo biology—reproduction, disease, and habitat expansion—and why they matter. Armadillos reproduce in a unique and puzzling manner: females always give birth to litters of genetically identical quadruplets, a strategy not found in any other vertebrates. Nine-banded armadillos are also the only vertebrates except for humans known to contract leprosy naturally. And what about habitat expansion? The authors suggest that the armadillo’s remarkable spread across the southeastern United States may be the consequence of its most notable feature: a tough, protective carapace. Biologists, evolutionists, students, and all those interested in this curious creature will find The Nine-Banded Armadillo rich in information and insight. This comprehensive analysis will stand as the definitive scientific reference for years to come and a source of pleasure for the general public. 344 pgs
