"The book presents an abundance of useful tabular material and cites a great majority of the most significant literature. It is a work that no serious student of the subject can afford to be without". BioScience 29, pp. 312

"A most welcome comprehensive review of coyote research and an introduction to the far-flung literature". Journal of Mammalogy, 60, pp. 658
