However, only a tiny percentage of tigers ever kill humans, and the total number of their victims is very small - perhaps surprising given that people are constantly encroaching on their territory. Stephen Mills offers some intriguing ideas about tiger kills, querying whether the impact of humans could actually be changing the behaviour of tigers in the wild, and reveals how shrinking habitats are confining tigers, forcing them to live in unnaturally high densities in some areas, with surprising results. Drawing on the latest research, together with his extensive experience of tigers in the field, Stephen deals with every aspect of tiger behaviour: from their social structures, breeding patterns and family life, to their eating habits and how they communicate and interact. He also discusses recent attempts to conserve tigers, offering a possible blueprint for the future, and provides up-to-date information on how and where to try and see tigers in the wild.
