- "This spectacular guide explores the mysteries of animal migration over land, through oceans, and by air. Lavishly illustrated with more than 300 colour photographs, maps, and illustrations, Animal Migration covers every continent as it traces the routes of some 50 remarkable migrations - including those of polar bears, wildebeest, hummingbirds, iguanas, sharks, and many others. Ben Hoare describes the navigation, reproduction, and feeding strategies of these animals and focuses on the migrations that stand out for their extraordinary challenges, such as those that take animals unthinkable distances across hostile or barren territory." "Designed for early browsing or in-depth study, Animal Migration is divided into four sections. The first section explains how migration works and why animals migrate, either as part of mass migration or on lonely odysseys. It explores the full range of orientation strategies, the evolution of migratory behavior, and the growing threats facing migratory wildlife today. Subsequent sections examine migration over land, in water, and by air. Profile boxes give fast facts on each species; informative maps draw on the latest research to show migration routes in different seasons; and special features focus on topics of particular interest. This book also includes a catalogue of migration hot spots around the world - places where the planet's greatest animal voyages can be observed." -- Jacket.
