The Arctic- a guide to coastal wildlife

The Arctic- a guide to coastal wildlife

By Tony Soper

A barren and inhospitable region for most of the year, the Arctic is permanent home to just a handful of hardy creatures. But come the summer, the wind stirs the waters to bring minerals to the surface, nourishing the plankton, that in turn attracts numerous birds and sea mammals to these shores. For just a few short months of almost endless daylight, the winter inhabitants of the Arctic fringes are joined by numerous shorebirds and waterfowl, seals and whales, all taking advantage of the abundance of food before heading south to avoid the harsh winter.

"Here, at last, is the book we have been waiting for." Sir David Attenborough.

Wildlife Management and Subsistence Hunting in Alaska

Wildlife Management and Subsistence Hunting in Alaska

By Henry Huntington

In Alaska, a key regulatory conflict exists between the needs of the traditional Inupiat Eskimo economy based on subsistence hunting and the management regimes of government agencies responsible for conservation of the hunted species. This has often led to serious tension between Eskimo and Regulator, and to ineffective management of the wildlife resource. This book addresses this important issue and provides a well-detailed and fascinating case study of how such a mismatch of goals and objectives can be constructively reconciled.
