PARKER, Gerry. Eastern Coyote : The Story of Its Success. (Halifax, N.S.) :Nimbus Publishing, (1995). First Printing. Pp [i]-x,1-254. Illustrated. Ma ps. 8vo,illustrated brown card covers. "One of the most adaptable and controversial animals in the western hemisphere has recently colonized eastern North America. Since the mid-1800s, this jackal-sized predator, the coyote, has spread from the grasslands of the wetsern United States and southwestern Canada north to Alaska, west to the Pacific, south to Mexico, and east toNewfoundland. Along the way, these 'wild dogs' have interbred with wolves and domestic dogs, adapting to new environments with remarkable dexterity. Gerry Parker draws upon an exhaustive review of the literature and his own experiences as a research biologist, who studied the coyote in New Brunswick, to answer many of the questions commonly asked of this new predator. Where did it come from? How did it get here? Is it coyote, wolf, or dog? What impact has it hs on the white-tailed deer and other species, including humans? Why has this medium-sized predator proven so successful at a time when many other forms of wildlife are threatened by habitat change and humans tinkering with the environment?" - from the rear cover.
