The Natural History of Weasels and Stoats

Ecology, Behavior, and Management

Second Edition

Carolyn M. King and Roger A. Powell
Illustrated by Consie Powell

  • The first edition (by Carolyn King, 1989) was the only full length and systematically documented monograph of the biology of weasels ever published and, given that no book similar in scope has appeared since, continues to be widely cited
  • First edition was written for the European market and sold in the U.S. unchanged; this second edition thoroughly covers both markets
  • Treats weasels both as native species of great beauty and value in their own environments, and as serious conservation pests
  • Places special emphasis on New Zealand, where weasels and stoats are serious introduced pests. Valuable funding and research here has exceeded that everywhere else over the last 30 years, therefore much useful information has been gained to the benefit of conservationists and enthusiasts worldwide.
