BLACK AND WHITE IN THE WILD



BLACK AND WHITE IN THE WILD

DR JOHN FELTWELL    Book Number: 87314    Product format: Hardback

Why is it that so many animals display a black and white coloration, and why do they do so? Zoologist and naturalist Dr John Feltwell explores the nature of black and white in mammals, birds, reptiles and invertebrates, as well as the remarkable albino and black forms of animals. The result is a stunning photographic celebration into this wild anomaly. What evolutionary trick has caused some animals to develop rigid colourings such as in pied birds and random patterns in others such as a zebra? Dr Feltwell looks at countershading, camouflage, black for warmth, warnings and signals, and disruptive colours in butterflies and moths, amphibians and fish. We meet the truly albino Asian white elephant, white tigers and lions, the Egyptian fruit bat, the spectacular white peacock, the white dodo, even albino lobsters and spiders. Read about the great auk and Adélie penguin, the black and white ruffed lemur, the gregarious waders that are crab plovers, meet Emperor penguins, the Arabian oryx and of course the giant panda, the snowy owl, the eagle and the carrion crow. Dozens of quality colour photos, glossary, 156pp. All copies SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR.
