Product Details

Field Guide=A guide with illustrations or photographs for identification
Second edition (completely revised and updated). In this completely revised and updated second edition: A total of 226 species are treated in full (206 were included in the first edition). All species accounts retained from the first edition have been updated to include the most recent research. All 195 maps showing the distribution and geographic range of each species have been revised to reflect the most current information. Twenty-nine beautiful color plates illustrate more than 220 species (including significant color variants between males and females or adults and young). Seven black-and-white plates contain more than 60 images of individual species, mainly bats. Ecotourists and field researchers alike have applauded this guide's compact size, light weight, and durability. More important, they have appreciated its clear and concise accounts of the mammals of this broad region. Each species account includes information on identifying characteristics, similar species, vocalizations, behavior and natural history, geographic range, conservation status, local names, and references to the scientific literature. A compact disc of mammal vocalizations-crucial to identifying nocturnal and otherwise cryptic animals that sometimes may be heard rather than seen- is available for purchase separately.
