4. Yellowstone Wolves: Science and Discovery in the World's First National Park
Author: by Douglas W. Smith
Published at: University of Chicago Press; First edition (December 7, 2020)
In 2020, it will have been twenty-five years since one of the greatest wildlife conservation and restoration achievements of the twentieth century took place: the reintroduction of wolves to the world’s first national park, Yellowstone. Eradicated after the park was established, then absent for seventy years, these iconic carnivores returned to Yellowstone in 1995 when the US government reversed its century-old policy of extermination anddespite some political and cultural oppositionbegan the reintroduction of forty-one wild wolves from Canada and northwest Montana.
In the intervening decades, scientists have studied their myriad behaviors, from predation to mating to wolf pup play, building a one-of-a-kind field study that has both allowed us to witness how the arrival of top predators can change an entire ecosystem and provided a critical window into impacts on prey, pack composition, and much else.
Here, for the first time in a single book, is the incredible story of the wolves’ return to Yellowstone National Park as told by the very people responsible for their reintroduction, study, and management. Anchored in what we have learned from Yellowstone, highlighting the unique blend of research techniques that have given us this knowledge, and addressing the major issues that wolves still face today, this book is as wide-ranging and awe-inspiring as the Yellowstone restoration effort itself.
5. Aye-Aye Gets Lucky (Endangered and Misunderstood)
Author: by Terri Tatchell
Published at: Fielding House Press Ltd. (September 18, 2019)
Aye-Aye doesn’t mean to be naughty. He can’t help himself.Or can he? Aye-Aye is an endangered lemur who loves pulling pranks on the villagers of Madagascar. He loves it when they squeal, but mostly he loves it when they huck their yummy meals at him.
Until one day, they decide enough is enough and ban him from the village! Poor Aye-Aye is lonely and hungry and desperate to find a way to win back their hearts and clear his name. But how can he when he doesn’t understand where he went wrong?
Luckily, a friendly flying fox swoops in to teach Aye-Aye a lesson and helps him to understand how his trickster ways made the people feel. Can Aye-Aye find a way to prove to the villagers that he’s changed? Will they give him a second chance?Will you?
On the surface, “Aye-Aye Gets Lucky” is about a misunderstood lemur finding a way to win love, but look deeper, and it’s a story about empathy, self-acceptance, community, and second chances. Kids love the fact-filled spread at the end of the story where they can learn about the aye-aye and flying fox, ways to help endangered animals, and even how to draw them!

8. Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism to Decode Animal Behavior (A Harvest Book)
Author: by Temple Grandin
Published at: Harcourt; 1st edition (January 2, 2006)
I don’t know if people will ever be able to talk to animals the way Doctor Doolittle could, or whether animals will be able to talk back. Maybe science will have something to say about that. But I do know people can learn to “talk” to animals, and to hear what animals have to say, better than they do now.
From Animals in TranslationWhy would a cow lick a tractor? Why are collies getting dumber? Why do dolphins sometimes kill for fun? How can a parrot learn to spell? How did wolves teach man to evolve? Temple Grandin draws upon a long, distinguished career as an animal scientist and her own experiences with autism to deliver an extraordinary message about how animals act, think, and feel.
She has a perspective like that of no other expert in the field, which allows her to offer unparalleled observations and groundbreaking ideas. People with autism can often think the way animals think, putting them in the perfect position to translate “animal talk.” Grandin is a faithful guide into their world, exploring animal pain, fear, aggression, love, friendship, communication, learning, and, yes, even animal genius.

Author: by Michael A. Steele
Published at: Smithsonian Books; Illustrated edition (October 1, 2003)
Written with clarity and wit by two top scientists, North American Tree Squirrels illuminates the everyday lives of gray and fox squirrels, the two most dominant types of tree squirrels of the eastern United States. Drawing on more than twenty years of research, Michael A.Steele and John L.
Koprowski detail the behavior, reproduction, diet, physiology, and habitat use of these engaging rodents, as well as their complex interdependent relationships with seed-producing trees. The authors compare and contrast tree squirrels with other members of their family, including ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots, and prairie dogs.
In addition to scientific revelations, the authors describe their fieldwork, from the pitfalls of patrolling forests at night in order to check nest boxes to the challenges of fitting squirrels with radio-tracking collars.

It offers in-depth profiles of four hundred megabats and microbats and detailed summaries of all the species identified to date.

Meldrum reports on the work of a team of experts from a wide variety of fields who were assembled to examine the evidence for a large, yet undiscovered, North American primate. He reviews the long history of this mystery-which long predates the “Bigfoot” flap of the late fifties-and explains all the scientific pros and cons in a clear and accessible style, amplified by over 150 illustrations.
Anyone who has pondered the mysteries of human evolution will be fascinated and eager to join Dr. Meldrum in drawing their own conclusion.
13. The Hidden Life of Wolves
Author: by Jamie Dutcher
Published at: National Geographic; Illustrated edition (February 5, 2013)
For conservationists and lovers of animals, nature, and especially dogs, this National Geographic book shares the surprising understanding of wild wolves gained over six years the authors spent living intimately with them. Delve into Jim and Jamie Dutcher’s amazing wolf photography documenting a pack of wolves at the edge of Idaho’s Sawtooth Wilderness, illuminating their complex social hierarchy.
Here is the alpha pair, leaders of the pack, often the only couple that mate. Here are the pups, born with eyes shut in the spring, tousled by their mother through the first six weeks of life. Here is the omega wolf, lowest ranking wolf in the pack, whose subservience, often playful, alleviates pack tension.
Here are moments of cooperation and moments of snarling dominance, moments of communication and affection. Here, too, are heartwarming moments of connection between the Dutchers and the wolves, caught in pictures that remind us how close the links are between wolves in the wild and the beloved family dog.

Author: by Ross D E MacPhee
Published at: W. W. Norton & Company; Illustrated edition (November 13, 2018)
The fascinating lives and puzzling demise of some of the largest animals on earth. Until a few thousand years ago, creatures that could have been from a sci-fi thrillerincluding gorilla-sized lemurs, 500-pound birds, and crocodiles that weighed a ton or moreroamed the earth.
These great beasts, or megafauna, lived on every habitable continent and on many islands. With a handful of exceptions, all are now gone. What caused the disappearance of these prehistoric behemoths? No one event can be pinpointed as a specific cause, but several factors may have played a role.
Paleomammalogist Ross D.E. MacPhee explores them all, examining the leading extinction theories, weighing the evidence, and presenting his own conclusions. He shows how theories of human overhunting and catastrophic climate change fail to account for critical features of these extinctions, and how new thinking is needed to elucidate these mysterious losses.
Along the way, we learn how time is determined in earth history; how DNA is used to explain the genomics and phylogenetic history of megafaunaand how synthetic biology and genetic engineering may be able to reintroduce these giants of the past.
