Alaska's Great White Sharks

ByBruce Wright

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Over the past three decades, ecologist Bruce Wright has studied several top-level predators in Alaska, including eagles, orcas, bears, sharks and other predators. In this wonderful book, Bruce reveals what is and is not known about the biology and behavior of white sharks, with particular emphasis on their occurrence in Alaska waters and role in the local marine ecology. By summarizing his work on the ecology of other Alaskan sharks, Bruce also offers a rare peek into how ecologists model the complex interactions among multiple levels of marine ecosystems and the likely consequences of human extirpation of sharks from the marine trophic web off Alaska. This book will be of great interest to anyone who works or recreates in coastal Alaska, students and professionals in marine ecology and conservation, as well as anyone who wants to know more about white sharks and other sharks, creatures which must surely rank among the most seductive of maritime mysteries.
