Where the Animals Go
Title: Where the Animals Go
Tracking Wildlife With Technology in 50 Maps and Graphics

ISBN: 9780393634020

From the Publisher:
For thousands of years, tracking animals meant following footprints. Now satellites, drones, camera traps, cellphone networks, and accelerometers reveal the natural world as never before. Where the Animals Go is the first book to offer a comprehensive, data-driven portrait of how creatures like ants, otters, owls, turtles, and sharks navigate the world. Based on pioneering research by scientists at the forefront of the animal-tracking revolution, James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti's stunning, four-color charts and maps tell fascinating stories of animal behavior. These astonishing infographics explain how warblers detect incoming storms using sonic vibrations, how baboons make decisions, and why storks prefer garbage dumps to wild forage; they follow pythons racing through the Everglades, a lovelorn wolf traversing the Alps, and humpback whales visiting undersea mountains. Where the Animals Go is a triumph of technology, data science, and design, bringing broad perspective and intimate detail to our understanding of the animal kingdom.
Where the Animals Go is beautiful and thrilling, a combination of the best in science and exposition, and a joy to study cover to cover. --Edward O. Wilson, University Research Professor Emeritus, Harvard University
This book is beautiful as well as informative and inspiring. There is no doubt it will help in our fight to save wildlife and wild habitats.--Jane Goodall
