Book Description:
In this book, the authors present topical research in the study of the ecology, behavior and cognition of elephants. Topics discussed in this compilation include the fertility, birth rate, infant mortality and survivorship of elephants in human care; the arrival of elephants on the island of Cyprus and their subsequent accumulation in fossil sites; habit relationships of Asian elephants; fertility control and African elephants; elephant milk; the influence of swamps and seasons on the density and diversity of large wild mammals in Amboseli National Park, Kenya and the numerical cognition of elephants.
