World of the Polar Bear
Bruemmer, Fred

Bloomsbury Publishing Plc 1989  1989 
  Large 4to hardcover colour & b/w illus. very good / very good d/w. By the author of "Arctic Animals" and "Seasons of the Seal" this book explores the rich history of man's fascination with polar bears: the Neanderthals worshipped them, the Vikings hunted them, the Romans kept them for sport. To the Inuit, polar bears were a vital food source; to Europeans and Egyptians, their pelts were highly prized as the most luxurious of furs; and to early Arctic explorers, they were a formidable obstacle to quests for the Northwest Passage. Packed with photographs, archival pictures and etchings the text describes their life cycle, hunting, mating and birth rituals and the unique symbiotic relationship between the bears and the seals who share their habitat.

When the first dried specimen of a platypus arrived in England in 1799 it was greeted with astonishment and disbelief. Nineteenth-century naturalists struggled to classify the platypus and the little animal excited curiosity and sparked fierce debate in international scientific circles. This volume presents the enigmatic story of a biological riddle that confounded scientists for many years, challenging theories of creationism, evolution and the classification of species along the way.

The Platypus A Unique Mammal.
Grant, Tom
ISBN: 0868402435
UNSW Press 1984  1984 
  8vo softcover 73pp index, colour & b/w illus. very good. Since it first became known to European scientists and naturalists in 1798, the platypus has been the subject of controversy, interest and absolute wonder. Found only in Australia, the platypus is a mammal that lays eggs but, like other mammals, it has fur and suckles its young on milk. Many early biologists who visited the British colonies in Australia, including Charles Darwin, went out of their way to observe this remarkable animal. In Australia today the species is considered to be an icon, but one that many Australians have never seen in the wild.nnThis book presents established factual information about the platypus and examines the most recent research findings, along with some of the colorful history of the investigation of its biology.

Big Year - The Extraordinary Story of the Greatest Bird-Watching Competition of all Time.
Obmascik, Mark
ISBN: 0553815512
Bantam February 1, 2005  2005 
  8vo softcover 309pp very good. In one of the wackiest competitions around, every year hundreds of obsessed bird watchers participate in a contest known as the North American Big Year. Hoping to be the one to spot the most species during the course of the year, each birder spends 365 days racing around the continental U.S. and Canada compiling lists of birds, all for the glory of being recognized by the American Birding Association as the Big Year birding champion of North America. In this entertaining book, Obmascik, a journalist with the Denver Post, tells the stories of the three top contenders in the 1998 American Big Year: a wisecracking industrial roofing contractor from New Jersey who aims to break his previous record and win for a second time; a suave corporate chief executive from Colorado; and a 225-pound nuclear power plant software engineer from Maryland. Obmascik bases his story on post-competition interviews but writes so well that it sounds as if he had been there every step of the way.
