Reviews

The images are accompanied by plenty of informative text that not only reveals the facts about these powerful animals, but also takes you along on Brieter's amazing journey of discovery.--C.A. Boyland"Shutterbug" (10/01/2009) Matthias Breiter takes the reader on a journey through a year in the lives of the grizzly, the black bear and the polar bear. His remarkable photographs, some of them startlingly in-your-face, and his text offer a different perspective on these animals and why they belong among us.-- (12/10/2005) The author begins this book by asking: "What good is a bear?" After reading this work, readers will have a well-articulated answer to that question. The message of the book is one of conservation and ecological value. The author makes this point by following members of three different bear species (brown, black, and polar) through a full calendar year. Readers get a wonderful snapshot of the lives of these animals as the seasons change. Information includes biogeography, mating habits, diet, anatomy, and evolution. The photographs are exquisite and eye-catching... An appendix describing the bears of the world is also full of interesting facts. The book is written for a high school audience and is aligned with the National Science Education Standards for life science content grades 9-12, focusing on organisms and environments, interdependence of organisms, and behavior of organisms.-- (09/01/2009) Important aspects of bear biology are concisely explained, like diet, hibernation, den microclimate, cannibalism, infanticide, bear prehistory, mating, navigation, colour morphs, and conservation. This information plus the many dramatic photos of bears feeding, fighting, playing, and following Mom (or just being bears) makes Bears: A Year in the Life a well produced must-have addition to the naturalist's library as well as a good bargain at a modest price. Highly recommended.-- (12/01/2006)
