      Consisting of more than six thousand species, amphibians are more diverse than mammals and are found on every continent save Antarctica. Despite the abundance and diversity of these animals, many aspects of the biology of amphibians remain unstudied or misunderstood. The Ecology and Behavior of Amphibians aims to fill this gap in the literature on this remarkable taxon.5/5(4).   'A fine, comprehensive survey of the ecology and habits of the wolf - his food, habitat, hunting, mating, social behavior and much more. Written in non-technical language, the book sets down just about everything that we know about this beautiful and - propaganda aside - shy animal, who, authorities agree, has never in this country attacked a man.'Reviews:

The sex ratio of young at dispersal was M/F, however the sex ratio of fourth-year gulls was M/F due to higher starvation rates of first-year males, and higher accident rates (amplified by factors related to food shortage) of second- and third-year males.

The resident gulls then alarm-called (kek and keow; Tinbergen ) re-swallowed the deposited food, “mewed” around the fence and offered food again.

Inevitably, however, even these chicks. The tendency for black-headed gulls to fly towards crowded places has become a fixed behavior (Duncan and Green, ). Undoubtedly, black-headed gulls in urban regions obtain food more easily than those in rural regions, especially because of their food-begging behavior and of the lower predation risk.

The Ecology and Behavior of Amphibians aims to fill this gap in the literature on this remarkable taxon. It is a celebration of the diversity of amphibian life and the ecological and behavioral adaptations that have made it a successful component of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.

Jonathan Livingston Seagull, the protagonist of the beloved book written by Richard Bach, is, in fact, a herring gull. Some seagulls that have taken up residence in cities far from the coast still.

Herring Gulls are ideal as bioindicators of ecosystem and environmental health, and as model organisms to study ecology, behavior, and the effects of environmental variables and contaminants because they are diurnal, common, abundant, large, and long-lived, as well as they nest in colonies over a wide geographical distribution.

No other book on amphibian ecology or behavior comes even close to the breadth and rigor of this work. The extraordinary wealth of real, peer-reviewed data that the author has gathered is simply staggering, and its seamless incorporation into the material is a testament to Kent Wells' unique grasp of amphibian s: Explores the ecology and habits of the wolf, including its personality, intelligence, wildness and fear, physical characteristics, sensory abilities, evolution, classification and genetics, distribution, and social habits.
