Description - Conservation of the Black-Tailed Prairie Dog by John L. Hoogland

The prairie dog is a colonial, keystone species of the grassland ecosystem of western North America. Unfortunately, prairie dogs are disappearing, and the current number is only about 2% of the number encountered by Lewis and Clark in the early 1800s. This book summarises ecology and social behaviour for pivotal issues such as when prairie dogs breed, how far they disperse, how they affect other organisms, and how much they compete with livestock. It is a unique and vital contribution for wildlife managers, politicians, environmentalists, and curious naturalists.
