KIRKUS REVIEW

A compendium of information about the biological urge- and its satisfaction-among North American mammals which is the first study of its kind and correlates a sizable body of very natural lore. Not the birds or the bees, but animals of all kinds point up the parallels- and variations- with human patterns of reproduction, as well as the wide differentiation which occurs in the structure of sex organs, sex characteristic mating calls and scents, courtship and sexual heat, rivalry for the female, the act of union, birth and the nursing and rearing of the young, as well as the rate of reproduction within the species. Zoological biology, for those who are alerted to the call of the wild.
