About this book

China is home to a remarkable variety of unusual wildlife, many of which are rare and threatened species under conservation. This new wildlife guide provides a colourful introduction to the species of a country that is beginning to emerge as a fascinating destination for natural history enthusiasts.

Visitors can discover a range of habitats: the huge deserts of the northwest and the Tibetan Plateau, forested mountain slopes and the rivers, lakes and steamy tropical forests of the deep south. Interesting features on medicinal plants, rare cranes and, of course, the giant panda supplement animal and habitat listings.

Accessible and beautifully illustrated, Chinese Wildlife will appeal both to the first-time visitor and the serious naturalist seeking a compact volume. It is also a great souvenir.

'Bradt Travel Guides simply have the best wildlife coverage of any of the popular guide books.' BBC Wildlife
