About this book

The objective of An Illustrated Guide to the Land Snails of the Western Ghats of India is to provide a brief introduction to the rich and fascinating land-snail fauna of the Western Ghats. All genera native to the Western Ghats are featured, as well as a few genera that are native to other, drier parts of India, but may occur in cultivated habitats (e.g. home gardens, monoculture commercial and forest plantations) or degraded forest in the Western Ghats. With the aid of this laminated fold-out guide it should be possible to identify most of these genera in the field, as well as to recognize some of the more distinctive native species (exotic species are not included).
