... surely destined to be the key reference point on a subject which is currently featuring high on international agendas for conservation priorities ... This global coverage ... encompassing both the large and small felids, is especially refreshing, and results in an almost encyclopaedic coverage. It could serve as a model for reference works on other groups of organisms of conservation importance. * Biodiversity and Conservation *

I found it very interesting and useful.
The only downside is that I would have liked colour pictures of all species, at it has select picutres in black and white.
As a biologist, I would reccomend this book to anyone interested in wild cats, if you dont find what you re looking for, it will certainly point out the direction.
The book covers all species of wild cats. There is a focus on the larger species like tigers, leopards, lions, etc but there is also a lot of information on many small species.
I hope more similar volumes will be published in the future (for example about eagles).
This book is a must for anyone interested in wild cats, predator ecology and conservation.
