The History Of British Mammals

by Derek Yalden, The History Of British Mammals Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The History Of British Mammals book, As ice retreated from Britain 15,000 years ago, a host of large mammals including reindeer, wild horses, wooly mammoths, moose, wolves, brown bears, lynxes and wolverines established itself in Britain. The largest surviving wild land mammal today, the red deer, the largest contemporary land carnivore, the badger and another 65 or so extant wild mammals included about a quarter of the wild mammals that have been introduced in the last 15,000 years. The contemporary fauna, however, is largely dominated by domestic animals, such as cattle, sheep, pigs and humans. This book explores the fate of the large extinct species, as well as how, why, and when the introduced species appeared.

(2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Download A History Of British Mammals Classic Reprint book, Excerpt from A History of British Mammals It seems to be fond of sweet things, for more than one observer has found it devouring the sugar placed on a tree trunk to attract moths,4 and Mr E. Bidwell5 saw one nibbling the flowers of honeysuckle to get at the nectar. It will also consume aphides, nut-weevils, and caterpillars, and occasionally the eggs6 of small birds; but, perhaps on account of its smaller size, it does not appear to be so much addicted to a diet of flesh or eggs as are the larger dormice of continental Europe. Retribution may sometimes overtake it when tres passing, for Mr A. H. Cocks once found one pecked to death in a thrush's nest. Like many other rodents this mouse commonly sits on its haunches when eating, holding its food in its hands. But it will also suspend itself head downwards by means of its small but remarkably strong claws, and even feeds comfortably in that position; it can run up and down the naked bole7 of a tree with astonishing rapidity. It is, besides, an active leaper, and springs from twig to twig for surprising distances. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Download A History Of British Mammals Vol 1 Of 3 book, Excerpt from A History of British Mammals, Vol. 1 of 3: Bats In my official capacity at the British Museum I have constantly been asked for the name Of a trustworthy book on the subject of British Mammals, and I have had to put off the enquirers with the promise of the present work, to the appearance of which every mammalogist, technical or amateur, has long been looking forward. To produce such a work is a difficult, though highly interesting task, which can only be efficiently completed in a large Museum. For this no one could be better suited than the author of the present work, who has for the last fifteen years worked constantly at the National Museum, not only on the British, but on all the European and Asiatic mammalia, and has written on them a considerable number of valuable scientific papers. He is therefore fully in touch with the literature of the subject, acquainted with all its recent advances, and in agreement with the principles of modern science. He has also had experience in the collecting and Observing of mammals in the field - at home, in continental Europe, on the Seal Islands of Bering's Sea, in Morocco, Kamchatka, and on the veldt of South Africa.
