Product Description: The first comprehensive guidebook for identifying the tracks and scats of all trackable animals of the United States and Canada. The Encyclopedia of Tracks and Scats is a comprehensive guide to identifying the tracks and scats of all trackable animals of the United States and Canada. With ample use of photographs and line drawings, Len McDougall—an adroit tracker and an experienced teacher of tracking skills—takes the reader step-by-step from basic identification skills to interpretation and understanding of each animal’s behavior by means of its tracks and scats. This volume includes all information necessary for professional biologists, field researchers, and wildlife personnel to readily identify their subject matter, but is also a handy, easily understandable reference for amateur and hobbyist trackers and hunters. The Encyclopedia of Tracks and Scats, with its systematic approach to teaching the fundamental skills of observation, enables the reader to quickly verify the source of any markings. Included in this volume are thorough, practical discussions of: • animal characteristics and classifications • taxonomy and dental classification • individual analysis of all hooved and pawed mammals, as well as birds, amphibians, and reptiles • collecting data from the field • a tracker’s essential supplies and field kit
