内容紹介

For years, predators like snow leopards and white-tipped sharks have been disappearing from the top of the food chain, largely as a result of human action. Science journalist Will Stolzenburg reveals why and how their absence upsets the delicate balance of the world's environment.

レビュー

"With a lucid and sparkling voice, William Stolzenburg offers a revealing and well-documented account that explains clearly why we need the wolf, tiger, and other predators, large and small, to maintain a healthy environment."--George B. Schaller, Vice President of Science and Exploration, Wildlife Conservation Society; author of the National Book Award-winning "The Serengeti Lion"; and winner of the National Geographic Lifetime Achievement Award and the World Wildlife Fund Gold Medal


"In dazzling descriptions, Stolzenburg demonstrates how the delicate balance between predator and prey is so essential, and his book, rich in dramatic accounts of life and death in the wild, is powerful and compelling. "--"Publishers Weekly," Starred Review

Schaller, Vice President of Science and Exploration, Wildlife Conservation Society; author of the National Book Award-winning "The Serengeti Lion"; and winner of the National Geographic Lifetime Achievement Award and the World Wildlife Fund Gold Medal

""Where the Wild Things Were" is science writing at its best. The subject is important for biology and sustainable development, the prose is excellent, turning lyrical at just the right times, and the story of the research is woven with clarity into natural history. Big, fierce animals have a noble champion in William Stolzenburg."--Edward O. Wilson, University Research Professor Emeritus, Harvard University

"Stolzenburg narrates these cautionary tales with a conservationist's attention to ecological detail and a childlike reverence for flesh-tearing beasts. His infection enthusiasm should spark even in bug-wary urbanites a renewed appreciation for nature's complexity." "--TIME magazine"

"This is a masterpiece, and its subject is extremely important and timely. I hope that Where the Wild Things Were receives the attention (and the accolades) it deserves." --Mark Garland, "BirdCapeMay.org"

"In dazzling descriptions, Stolzenburg demonstrates how the delicate balance between predator and prey is so essential, and his book, rich in dramatic accounts of life and death in the wild, is powerful and compelling." --"Publishers Weekly, Starred review"

"A passionately rendered update on our faltering environmental stability." --"Kirkus Reviews"

"“A meticulous and convincing argument that alpha predators are the primary regulators of ecosystems, and that their removal is crippling our planet’s biodiversity.”—Bill McKibben, "Boston Globe"
