Wild Dogs: The Natural History of the Nondomestic Canidae presents a comprehensive, current natural history of the nondomestic dog species. In this book, a prodigious amount of previously uncollected information is presented in a straightforward form. The organization of the book is alphabetical by genus, and, within each genus, alphabetically by Linnean species name. In some cases, very little is known about a species. In other cases, the amount of available information is enormous, and has been distilled to summary form. The volume is intended as a straightforward assemblage of material. It points the way toward, but is not intended to provide, a synthetic or theoretical big picture. The book is intended as a general reference work. Biologists, wildlife managers, mammalogists, conservationists, students, and carnivore specialists will find here information assembled nowhere else. Over 600 sources are included in the bibliography, so the book also serves as an entry to the literature for those seeking more technical or specialized knowledge. Naturalists and outdoorsmen will also enjoy discovering the particulars of familiar and unfamiliar canid species.
