Since The Natural History of Badgers (1986) was written, much research has been done which has added considerably to our understanding of badgers, particularly the social behaviour, ecology and population dynamics of the European species. As co-author, Dr Chris Cheeseman's expertise as a leading field researcher on badgers has been of great value. Between them, Ernest and Chris have studied badgers for over 80 years!
This new book is a major revision which aims to synthesise the extensive knowledge which now exists, and make available to naturalists, conservationists, professional scientists and the general reader what has previously only been available from scientific papers both at home and abroad. It provides an up-to-date, easy-to-read understanding of these fascinating animals and includes a final chapter on other species of badgers worldwide.
