Back in print as a University Press of Colorado edition, this abundantly illustrated volume with field sketch illustrations by William D.

Twenty-one of the world's authorities on the species discuss its taxonomy, reproduction and growth, feeding habits, behavior, population dynamics, relationships with predators, incidental mortality, seasonal migration patterns, and habitat and harvest management.
