Yellowstone WildlifeYellowstone Wildlife

Ecology and Natural History of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem

Paul A. Johnsgard

Narrated by Jack de Golia

Available from Audible


Book published by University Press of Colorado


Yellowstone Wildlife is a natural history of the wildlife species that call Yellowstone National Park and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem their home. Illustrated with stunning images by renowned wildlife photographer Thomas Mangelsen, Yellowstone Wildlife describes the lives of species in the park, exploring their habitats from the Grand Tetons to Jackson Hole.

From charismatic megafauna like elk, bison, wolves, bighorn sheep, and grizzly bears, to smaller mammals like bats, pikas, beavers, and otters, to some of the 279 species of birds, Johnsgard describes the behavior of animals throughout the seasons, with sections on what summer and autumn mean to the wildlife of the park, especially with the intrusion of millions of tourists each year. Enhanced by Mangelsen’s wildlife photography, Yellowstone Wildlife reveals the beauty and complexity of these species’ intertwined lives and that of Yellowstone’s greater ecosystem.

His previous works include 56 books, mostly reference works on bird groups, such as cranes and waterfowl, and the ecology of Nebraska and the Great Plains. Thomas D. Mangelsen is one of the world’s premier nature photographers. His work is frequently seen in major publications such as National Geographic, Audubon, Smithsonian, Time, and Life.
