The seven species of swans are an easily and universally recognized group of waterfowl, which have historically played important roles in the folklore, myths and legends in many cultures. Among the... More > largest of all flying birds, they have been used as symbols of royalty, grace and beauty, and largely for these reasons swans have only rarely been considered acceptable as targets for sport hunting. Swans occur on all continents but Africa, though most species are found in the temperate and arctic zones of North America and Eurasia. Swans are a long-lived species and are among the most strongly monogamous of birds, having prolonged pair and family bonds that influence their flocking and social behavior, and contribute to the overall high degree of human interest in them. This volume describes their distributions, ecology, social behavior, and breeding biology. Included are nine distribution maps, 19 drawings, 23 photographs by the author, and a bibliography of nearly 700 references.< Less

Millions of years ago, a host of life forms began evolving. Monkeys, the first of our primate families, eventually transformed into life forms akin to ourselves. Although homo sapiens evolved with a... More > minimal gene variation from our chimpanzee cousins, major additions to our crania caused our species to become embroiled in conflicts that have consistently detracted from our abilities. Yet strangely, our species has never been identified with a low order of life as in biology’s, Animalia, despite protests from humanity. Within a collection of writings, William Peter Scott explores a variety of topics within both natural history and the history of human civilization, blending his reflections with anecdotes and tales from the past. While examining the backbone of the Magna Carta, Scott shares insight into why he believes the world must revert to a modernized version of this charter of rights, before it is too late to recover.< Less
