Covering all 13 species of wild cattle, Ecology, Evolution and Behaviour of Wild Cattle brings together the contributions of international leading experts on the biology, evolution, conservation status and management of the tribe Bovini, providing: A comprehensive review of current knowledge on systematic, anatomy and ecology of all wild cattle species (chapters 1 to 8); A clear understanding of the conservation status of each species and the gaps in our current knowledge (chapters 9 to 20); A number of case studies on conservation activities and an investigation of some of the most threatened and poorly understood species (chapters 21 to 27). An invaluable resource for students, researchers, and professionals in behavioural ecology, evolutionary biology and conservation biology, this beautifully illustrated reference work reveals the extraordinary link between wild cattle and humans, the benefits some of these species have brought us, and their key roles in their natural ecosystems. The first comprehensive guide of its kind, this volume is essential for any study of wild cattle Gathers the results from a three-year study involving 70 world leading experts from 21 countries Features numerous illustrations, including 32 colour plates
