Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

For the past 12 years, Schaller, noted mammalogist and author of numerous books on Asian and African wildlife (The Last Panda, LJ 3/1/93), has surveyed the flora and fauna of the remote northern section of the Tibetan steppe, an area that in 1993 was designated as the Chang Tang Reserve. The Chang Tang is the world's second-largest wildlife reserve and is home to a unique assemblage of large mammals, including the chiru, kiang, argali, wild yak, and Tibetan gazelle. The book's emphasis is on the natural history of these ungulates: their taxonomy, status and distribution, feeding ecology, and behavior. But the overall focus, as with Schaller's other works, is on the conservation of the ecosystem. The writing is clear and accessible, but this book will appeal more to an academic audience. The lay reader will prefer Schaller's Tibet's Hidden Wilderness (Abrams, 1997), an anecdotal account of his adventures in the Chang Tang accompanied by lots of glorious color photos. Recommended for academic and large public libraries.ALynn C. Badger, Univ. of Florida Lib., Gainesville
