A world unto itself, California encompasses an environment as rich and diverse as any on earth. Deserts, mountain ranges, wetlands, woodlands and 1100 miles of coastline provide habitats for over 580 bird species, 200 mammals, 130 reptiles and amphibians, 60 freshwater fishes and 5000 native plant species, many found only in California. This beautifully illustrated guide highlights over 370 common and unique plants and animals and 85 of the state's outstanding natural attractions. It is an indispensible single reference for amateur naturalists, students and tourists alike.
