The Nubian ibex has survived among Arabia's rugged foothills and escarpments for thousands of years. Under the auspices of the National Commission for - Wildlife Conservation and Development, headquartered in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the author has studied these wild ungulates in their arid environments over a period of several years: his work provides a unique insight into their biology, ecology and behaviour. The ibex is of key, importance in Arabia's conservation strategy and the author reveals how it has fared in the modern age, assisted by impressive conservation measures. This book is a most eloquent statement in support of Arabia's wildlife in general, and the Nubian ibex in particular.
