Présentation de l'éditeur

This is the first scholarly book on the antelope that dominates the savanna ecosystems of eastern and southern Africa. It presents a synthesis of research conducted over a span of fifty years, mainly on the wildebeest in the Ngorongoro and Serengeti ecosystems, where eighty percent of the world’s wildebeest population lives. Wildebeest and other grazing mammals drive the ecology and evolution of the savanna ecosystem. Richard D. Estes describes this process and also details the wildebeest’s life history, focusing on its social organization and unique reproductive system, which are adapted to the animal’s epic annual migrations. He also examines conservation issues that affect wildebeest, including range-wide population declines.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a very superior book 11 mai 2014
Par Elizabeth Marshall Thomas - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is perhaps the best book ever written about an animal. The author, Richard Estes, is an important scientist in the field of wildlife studies, and has spent most of a lifetime studying the African antelopes known as gnus or wildebeests. Who would dream that these would be spellbinding? But they are--that and more. For example, would anyone imagine that a male wildebeest in mating season, wanting to attract a female who possibly isn't interested in him, would stand in front of her, then rear straight up on his hind legs to show her his erection? I'd doubt that anyone would believe this, yet some males do it, and there's a photo to prove it. But this is one tiny scene among thousands. Wildebeests famously migrate, and we can now see how and why. Their social lives are fascinating, as is their ecosystem and their relationship to it, and it's all presented with enough hard facts to fill an eighteen-wheeler in language that anyone who can read can understand. In this, Estes departs from many scientists who present their findings in science-speak, producing texts that only other scientists appreciate. But Estes wants everyone to understand. And he knows how to make that happen. I wouldn't call myself much of an intellectual--I like to watch TV and read fiction--but to me this book was far better than all that. It was a riveting adventure, a revelation about a fascinating animal, an entrance into a unique ecosystem with all its wonders, an experience not to be missed.

Well written, erudite, yet highly readable account translating 40+ years of research and experience with this fascinating antelope, the Wildebeest. I read this in preparation of a photographic safari in Tanzania, and apart from chapters about the different species, behaviours, and migratory journeys, it contained the most up to date information I could find on conservation in the Serengeti and surrounding reserves.
