    The Living Elephants: Evolutionary Ecology, Behaviour, and Conservation

    The Living Elephants Evolutionary Ecology, Behaviour, and Conservation
    by Raman Sukumar



    Pages: 496
    Publisher: --
    Edition: 1st., 2003

    Description

    This book pulls together the available information on both Indian and African elephants, synthesizing the biology, ecology, behavior, evolution, and conservation of elephants and covering the history of human interactions with elephants. There is no other braod treatment of the subject.Although the study of elephants can provide clues to understanding such diverse topics as mammal communities, tropical plants, and climate change, Sukumar (ecology, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore) contends that they have rarely been viewed within the framework of modern evolutionary theory. In redressing this gap, he discusses proboscidean evolution, genetics, place in history, social behavior, distribution, habitat, and conservation issues. Appended material includes a mathematical accounting of the range in elephant size.
