5.0 su 5 stelle The best book about wolves. 17 ottobre 2013
Di G. Hartz - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I've read a number of books about wolves and although I enjoyed them I've always had doubts whether I was getting the whole picture. Here is a scientist who studied wolves for over 40 years in their most natural conditions one would think is possible. His work continued relentlessly throughout the year in the air and on the ground. His insights are fascinating and his findings significantly different from some others who have studied wolves and yet, as I read on, they made a lot of sense and his conclusions seemed beyond question. What a magnificent creature and what a wonderful book about them.

5.0 su 5 stelle Facinating, informative book and life's work 3 novembre 2013
Di Kimadoo - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
What a great book - what a purpose filled life. I wish everyone who wants to kill wolves, and those who have the stereotypical, and completely wrong views of these wonderful creatures would read this book. I fear for the future of the wolves, both in Alaska and in the lower 48, as they face possible delisting despite scientists and all information proving why they need to be protected. Also, I liked how Haber stopped using the word "pack" due to the wrongful connotation that it brings to mind about wolves, using "group" instead, which I will from now on. Far too mIany have no clue about wolves and want to exterminate them. I had no idea about the complex family structure, how it dictates the survival of the group, and the myriad of ways that people want cruelly slaughter these amazing creatures for no good reason.

5.0 su 5 stelle Holleman has done Wolves good 4 aprile 2014
Di R. Hoskins - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
If Ms Holleman had not put all Haber's work in one accessible spot for all of us to read and contemplate Dr Haber's work much to the now thwarted joy of the state of Alaska's Board of Game would have passed into oblivion and they could continue their unrestrained predator control killing of wolves (and bears and coyotes) with less visibility and review. But the appearance of this book informs all of us, Alaskans and otherwise, that the state of Alaska is at war with its wildlife. Gordon Haber fought them against all odds but the opposition has been sustained by Ms Holleman. This book will raise the awareness of everyone about what is happening in Alaska to one of Creation's finest creatures. It is amazing that she collected all his notebooks, photos, and anything that had to do with wolves and organized it in a readable account of decades of serious research by the dean of wolf researchers. It the best wolf book I have come across and it's full of Haber's work of over 40 years. It certainly opened my eyes to what wolves are all about and their greatest threat: the state of Alaska.
5.0 su 5 stelle In-Depth Research - Little to Counter 28 giugno 2015
Di G. Leatham - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Dr. Gordon Haber's prolonged observation of wolf groups in and around the Denali National Park in Alaska is the only research that I have to give in-depth insight into the wolf family structures. I have read many of the works of L. David Mech and Jim Dutcher, and various other research projects but Haber's credibility is unmatched in his prolonged study of several decades.

The book is a great wealth of credible information on the structure of the wolf groups that Dr. Gordon Haber studied. Through decades of research, Dr. Haber had observed extensive wolf interactions within their family group. The intimate relationships between wolves in the groups can easily be admired, especially with the cooperative way wolves raise their young. The strategy, skill and intelligence shown through hunting can be revered as it has once been by older societies. All of this is difficult to present to hunters and trappers like the Alaska Fish and Game Board; this information is not cared about. Wolves have been demonized, and in many cases had become hated by hunters and trappers. It is my personal belief because wolves keep herds moving, and it is much easier to "hunt" a standing herd that is there today, and will be there next year, and the year after and after that year and after that one too.

This book gives great insight to the works of wolf groups, but seldom includes the politics that Dr. Gordon Haber had to deal with when advocating for wolves. In example, in the book Dr. Gordon Haber mentions that he had heard the figure of wolf losses being about 20-30% annually due to natural occurrences and that his opposition claims that the hunting and trapping simply replaces those numbers. The book does not include much debate about this, for example: those 20-30% natural losses are through the classic saying of survival of the fittest. Trapping does not discriminate and can easily remove the fittest of the population, which is an evolutionary setback as those genes are no longer available to continue the population. Hunting is directly aiming for the largest and fittest which is damning to the population of wolves, caribou and moose alike. Or we can focus on if this statement were true, then the efforts to cull the population are pointless, as stated by the advocates of the culling programs themselves. Further more if this statement had any shred of truth to it, then it applies for the moose and caribou populations. Human hunting only replaces natural losses, then why is there a need to artificially boost the numbers? The entire statement is critically flawed. I am surprised the book did not expand more on that, and I am unsure if Dr. Haber has more information to counter such a critically flawed statement.

Among Wolves (2013) also mentioned that Dr. Gordon Haber was confronted with the claim that wolves are causing massive moose and caribou decline. It is mentioned that this is a natural rise and fall over ungulate populations over generations, and this is especially true in certain wildlife populations. Lemmings for example are notorious for having massive spikes in their population, followed by a very quick and drastic fall a year or two later. Are foxes and raptors to blame for this drastic fall? The thousands of rotting corpses that go uneaten would certainly prove not. Not as drastic but the rise and fall in ungulate populations are natural just as well. There is no threat of ungulates being decimated because of the fact that fossil records prove that predators and ungulates have lived together for hundreds thousands of years, both of them at the top of the evolutionary food chain. Even more recently with the surviving records of the native humans on the american continents, they lived with wolves and ungulates for thousands of years and revered wolves as their ability to work together to take down much larger prey.

Finally I am surprised that the predator-livestock relations regarding wolves was not brought up in the book. I could go into this by explaining that other predator conservation projects, like the Cheetah Conservation Fund, have proven very successful with guard dog programs, but the book hadn't touched up on that subject.

Dr. Gordon Haber's research presented through Among Wolves (2013) focuses on the health of the wolf population and early in the book it is mentioned that most of his research is about the overall health of the ecosystem. That is the most valuable, and this book presents how the death of a few key individuals of a single wolf group can change the ecosystem. Wolves are and have always been the cornerstone predator in the world; without them we have the overpopulation seen in Yellowstone that lead to starvation, disease and a boon in parasites.

I highly recommend this book to give in-depth knowledge in the lives of wolves, and basic knowledge on how to take a stand in defense of the cornerstone species of the North American continent.
5.0 su 5 stelle Amazing insight into complex social structure and cooperation among wolves 2 ottobre 2016
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Fascinating glimpse into the social structure of wild-born wolves in natural habitat, as seen over decades. The reader becomes intimately familiar with individual wolves, and their successors. The recent, posthumous removal of this family group (after Gordon Haber's death and the publication of this book, through Alaska's recent policy of encouraging wolf hunting and trapping on our National Park lands) is a case study in tragic management policies that are ignorant of science. I have purchased several copies and given them all to colleagues and I'm now ordering another copy for myself. A must-read for anyone interested in acquiring a deeper understanding of ecosystems, the hidden lives of wildlife, conservation, or non-lethal predator management. A great read for anyone else.
