Book Title: Javelinas and Other Peccaries: Their Biology, Management, and Use

Author: Lyle K. Sowls

Book Description:

I chose this book to honor the author Lyle Sowls who passed away last year. I first met Lyle when I was graduate student. Although he was not my theses advisor, he was very instrumental in helping me conduct my research on the desert adaptations of the collared peccary. His extensive knowledge of the biology of this mammal and his willingness to help were critical to my success. We became close friends. Among mammalogists the book is considered an important contribution and reference on the Family of Peccaries.
