Product Description

The jaguar is the most powerful and imposing animal in the Americas. Only those who have seen the creature up close, though caged, could hear its frightening roar and feel its hot breath, can relate to the experience. This being a mixture of fascination and panic, strong feelings that only those who have been in close proximity to the jaguar, or how it is best known in Brazil as the Panthera onça, can relate to.

This book is the first work to display publicly illustrated content - 189 images - on the biological and anthropological significance of the jaguar in the American continent, fromthe southern United States to the Argentine Patagonia. Its author, the ecologist Evaristo Eduardo de Miranda, was a professor at the Botany Institute of the Federal Rural University of Pernambuco (UFRPE) and the Institute of Biosciences of the University of São Paulo (USP), and is a member of several scientific societies.

He has acted as a consultant to the UN at the World Conference on the Environment, Rio-92 and is the author of hundreds of scientific and publicity articles published in Brazil and abroad, as well as more than 30 books. Jaguar is co-authored by renowned journalist Liana John, who specializes in the environment.
