PATHS ACROSS THE EARTH

The authors of several volumes on nature's ways, this husband and wife team of scientists presents here an examination of the migratory habits of the animal world. That each creature can be identified according to its habits is illustrated through the descriptions of: bird migrations--from sparrows to the nearly extinct whooping crane, the nomadic patterns of the flesh eating ants of the New World tropics and Africa, the spawning of cod, salmon, whales and the enigmatic eel, the death marches of the African springbuck and the marvelous drives of every creature in search of or in flight from water. Here, are accented, animals that follow the seasons in mass movements, or as the clam, ""free ride"" as guests. For the naturalist neophyte or those of seasoned interest, this book is fascinating and authoritative.
