One of the fastest land animals on Earth (second only to the cheetah), the pronghorn can reach speeds of more than 50 miles per hour. It also is one of the most fascinating of all animals. For many people, the pronghorn was nearly as much a symbol of the American West as was the bison; for some, it still is. Eliminated from much of its historic range by the early 1900s, this unique North American big game species has experienced a remarkable recovery and now is found throughout the western United States, Canada, and northern Mexico. Thirty years in the making, 'Pronghorn: Ecology and Management' contains the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on the behaviour, physiology, migration, taxonomy, and management of this extraordinary animal. Full chapters are devoted to distribution, nutrition and food, diseases and parasites, ecosystem management, hunting, and much more. The principal authors -- the world's pre-eminent pronghorn biologists, Bart W O'Gara and Jim D Yoakum -- conclude with a thorough discussion of the future of pronghorn and their management. With 23 chapters that include contributions by 10 other wildlife professionals and over 850 illustrations, including original artwork by Edson Fichter and Daniel P Metz. This is certain to be the definitive work on the species for years to come.
