This illustrated checklist covers South Asia (India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka), a region with great habitat diversity which is especially rich in mammalian life and attracts numerous wildlife watchers. Although not a traditional Field Guide, this book will equip both residents and visitors to the region with an easy-to-use resource that will allow them to quickly learn about the more than 500 species of mammals known to occur in the area.
This book is part of the Lynx Illustrated Checklists collection created from the vast wealth of data, illustrations and maps compiled for the Handbook of the Mammals of the Word series, that has been distilled into useful and portable books for your visit to a specific destination.
