Nature in the city
City Critters: Wildlife in the Urban Jungle
by Nicholas Read
A great many creatures share our urban environment. City Critters examines why cities are so attractive to wild animals, why certain animals seem well-suited to city-living, and what we can do to coexist peacefully with our new neighbours.
The sheer diversity of city critters are revealed by the chapter headings - mammals, marine mammals, fish and aquatic creatures, birds that fly, birds that swim, reptiles and amphibians, and insects and spiders. With colour photographs, interesting facts, and entertaining anecdotes, the book is ideal for animal-loving readers of all ages.
