Bears are among the world's most beloved creatures, and at the same time are the most feared and misunderstood. In stunning photographs and vivid, knowledgeable text, this book reveals all the major species and subspecies-more than a dozen-examining not only their appearance and habitat, but their unique life cycles and behavior, explaining the strangest of facts and exposing the often accepted but erroneous myths surrounding these animals. Variety of bear types from the different parts of the world are discussed in this volume. The future of the world's bears is uncertain and therefore critical. Although bears in some localities are abundant and thriving, others are threatened or endangered. This fully illustrated volume explains not only what is being done on their behalf but what more could and should be done in the future.
