Yellowstone Wildlife: Ecology and Natural History of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem

Ecology and Natural History of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem

This is a natural history of the wildlife species that call Yellowstone National Park and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem their home. Illustrated with stunning images by renowned wildlife photographer Thomas Mangelsen, this book describes the lives of species in the park, exploring their habitats from the Grand Tetons to Jackson Hole. From charismatic megafauna like elk, bison, wolves, bighorn sheep, and grizzly bears, to smaller mammals like bats, pikas, beavers, and otters, to some of the 279 species of birds, Johnsgard describes the behaviour of animals throughout the seasons, with sections on what summer and autumn mean to the wildlife of the park, especially with the intrusion of millions of tourists each year. Enhanced by Mangelsens wildlife photography, the book reveals the beauty and complexity of these species intertwined lives and that of Yellowstones greater ecosystem.
