Algonquin Wildlife: Lessons in Survival is a celebration of the vast array of wildlife studies ongoing in Ontario's very first provincial park. Probably more research has been done in Algonquin than in any other protected landscape in the world. Norm Quinn, long-time Park Management Biologist in Algonquin, has been fortunate to know and to work with many of those dedicated and unique wildlife researchers who roam and probe the forests and lakes in search of Nature's secrets. His knowledge, experience, and sense of humour combine to transform technical biological studies, on moose, wolves, fish and other creatures of the wild, into entertaining and inviting stories without losing the significance of the research. This is also a book about Algonquin, Ontario's flagship Park and one of the foremost canoe-tripping wilderness sites in the world. Through Algonquin Wildlife, you are invited to explore this relatively unknown but vital part of the Park's heritage - a must for both seasoned and budding naturalists.

A really good book, I enjoyed very much. Discovering the world of wildlife science in the setting of Algonquin Park. Quinn does an excellent job of explaining some of the science and passes on a great many entertaining tales. If you ever want to impress friends and colleagues with interesting tidbits of natural history this is the book to read. Black flies that specifically home in on loons, ticks that can take down a moose! In my opinion very well written and edited to boot. I've actual ordered 2 copies as gifts – that enjoyable!
