Description
The author of Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature and the Field Guide to Wildlife series, biologist Janine Benyus here helps us read the distinctive communication of wild animals in their natural environments. Benyus profiles 20 animals, from the African elephant and the bottlenose dolphin to the Adélie penguin, and explains their basic behaviors (locomotion, feeding, drinking, bathing, grooming, sleeping), group interactions (greeting, social play, group defense, conflict, aggression/submission, fighting, courtship, copulation), and parenting (birth, care and feeding, teaching, and communal care). Throughout, former New York Museum of Natural History staff artist Juan Carlos Barberis illustrates Benyus's observations with detailed line drawings.

"Numerous sidebars showcase vital stats on each animal, quirky facts, and trivia. Each chapter ends with a list of behaviors for readers to look for at the zoo or in the wild. Plentiful introductory material highlights zoo conditions and habitat simulation and includes a lengthy overview of how animals behave in general. Noted nature illustrator Barberis supplies artful line drawings. The narrative is extremely accessible, and readers of all ages will enjoy learning something new about their favorite zoo animals."—Booklist
