Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
A field guide to identifying what animal has passed by or fed from evidence it left behind. The arrangement is by footprint, feeding signs, animal remains, droppings, and other signs. Within each section, creatures are discussed from most primitive to most advanced by human reckoning; neighbor children are off the scale at one end or the other. The original Dyrespor: Fra pattedyr ofg fugle was first published in 1998 by G. E. C. Gad Publishers, Denmark. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
From the Publisher

"The tracks and signs book is ideal for sorting out half-eaten nuts, scratched bark, pellets, droppings and foot prints found on a country walk. . .[this book is] well illustrated, comprehensive, and excellent value for money."--Birds

"The real value of this book lies in the wealth of behavioral and ecological information given in the abundant text. For example, you can find out what sort of animal is likely to be breaking apart wasps' nests, explanations of patterns produced by different quadrupeds walking and running, and why hedgehog droppings are so variable."--Bulletin of British and Ecological Society
