Den danske natur er i fokus i denne bog af naturentutiasten J. Muus Pedersen, der gennem mange år begik sig både til lands og til vands som jager og fisker. Lige så meget som det er en landskabsfortælling handler bogen om det danske dyreliv, der er langt mere varieret end de fleste tror.Just Christian Muus-Pedersen (1908-1978) var en dansk forfatter, journalist, tegner, jæger og lokkefuglemager. Han debuterede som forfatter i 1948 med bogen "Vildt forude" og udgav siden flere bøger om jagt og natur. J. Muus-Pedersen voksede op i Nordjylland, og den nordjyske natur har spillet en stor rolle i hans forfatterskab, som indeholder smukke beskrivelser fra hans barndomsland.
Hunde gør det. Tusindben gør det. Og dinosaurerne gjorde det. Du gør det. Blæksprutter gør det ikke. Måske gør edderkopper det, men det kræver mere forskning. Fugle gør det ikke, men de kunne, hvis de ville. Sild gør det, men kun for at kommunikere med hinanden. Denne bog er den ultimative guide til dyreflatulens, og du får al den viden, som du ikke vidste, du havde brug for om 80 meget forskellige dyrearter: Hvorfor lugter hyænens prutter ekstra fælt? Hvad er en fossa - og prutter den? Og hvad er en prut egentlig? Det svarer en række biologer på i denne videnskabelig, sober og vanvittig underholdende bog. Til læsere i alle aldre Dani Rabaiotto er zoolog. Nick Caruso er økolog og forsker.
Is There This Beast In Our Midst?What is it about cougars? Why does this phantom of the eastern woods stimulate such passion among so many people? For decades wildlife biologists have been telling us that they do not exist east of the Mississippi and yet each year there are hundreds of people claiming to have seen one. Is there any truth to these claims, or are they misidentifications, wishful thinking or tall tales? Nature writer Robert Tougias journeys deep into the world of the cougar and into the reasoning of those that believe they exist and those that do not. The Quest For The Eastern Cougar: Extinction or Survival? is an informative voice of reason that quiets the confusion regarding the powerful predator. It tells us about the cats historic demise and alleged modern human encounters. The scientific explanations as to why one ought to believe or dismiss the cougars presence are unraveled. It discusses the ultimate question: whether or not cougars have survived in the East or have already left us. No matter what you choose to believe, cougars are likely to continue to make the news. Cougars are turning up in unthinkable places these days, attacks are becoming more frequent out West, eastern sightings have increased and are beginning to offer better evidence. We will be hearing much more about these powerful carnivores, and in the not too distant future we will see more of them. Are there cougars lurking in your back woodlot? Is the East ready for this magnificent predator?In this readable, well-researched book, Robert Tougias has made a valuable and timely contribution to the public and scientific discourse about mountain lions in the East and the potential for their recovery. This book deserves to be widely read by conservationists, researchers, policy makers and anyone interested in America's lion."e;Christopher PapouchisConservation BiologistMountain Lion FoundationSacramento, CARobert Tougias sheds much-needed light on one of Americas most intriguing wildlife mysteries. This book is for anyone whos ever wondered about the creatures that haunt our forests and our collective imagination. David BaronAuthor- Beast In The GardenNorton Publishing

While writing these children's books I mixed fact with fiction, reality with fantasy, and the will to overcome near-impossible problems with creative solutions. Since children need positive encouragement, optimism, hope, and, most of all - love, I've created stories using animals - who are true to their particular nature. I chose animals which children can both relate to and understand by their own unique behaviors, but sometimes with a little humor and a few unexpected happenings. Positive reading for positive readers!This first book in the Wonderful Stories from Skog Forest series is about a yearling bunny that visits a bunny feeding station built by the owner of the home, Mr. Teddy. While the bunny feeds, he is constantly on the lookout for Odin, the Fox King. One day, Odin chases the li'l bunny and instead of escaping like usual, he tumbles down a snowy hill and ends up in a giant snowball that eventually falls into the Flusse River. Li'l bunny then digs his way to the top where he meets many new friends as he floats away, but also realizes that he has injured his right ear. After a meeting with a wise blue jay, Mr. Vis, li'l bunny is convinced that his injury isn't a disability at all, but a blessing that makes him stand out in Skog Forest and leads him to great happiness. This book teaches children with injuries and disabilities that these misfortunes may bring them fortune in many different ways and not to listen to ridicule.

In the past 25 years, science has made great advancements in the field of Veterinary Medicine. Of these advancements, many benefit our feline community. Where once a cat was considered old at 6 years, with a life expectancy of 8 to 10 years, they are now able to live longer and healthier lives, many cats into their late teens.On Older Cats presents a view of the aging cat in a most unique way. Rather than being too technical, the information is given in layman language, easily understood by anyone.The book begins with the first changes you would notice, the outward appearances, then progresses to internal changes and behavioral changes. Each item discusses, from eyes and ears to respiratory system and even sleep behavior, is explained as normal functions followed by results of normal aging and expected problems. Chapter V, What You Can Do, covers everything from home care (diet and grooming to creature comforts), travel care and the most important health care for your older cat. There is also a section on alternative remedies, seldom found in other cat books. And, of course, a section on the emotional topics of euthanasia, pet loss and grieving.In a time where most shelters think of cats as old at four years, it's refreshing to find an author who feels that cats don't even reach their prime until after six years. The author has been privileged to observe many of her cats living into their late teens and early twenties. The author has taken scientific information and molded it with her hands-on experience to create On Older Cats, a book which would be a welcomed addition to any cat lovers bookshelf.
