This book is focused on animal taxa commonly seen in the Indian subcontinent. This book is all about animals; its incredible diversity presented in a systematic, legible and straight forward manner. A number of activities for the readers to complete makes this book more like an activity log-book or a puzzle rather than a comprehensive reference work. You will find herein almost every animal commonly seen in India, presented in an Indian (and absolutely scientific) context, from the staggering diversity of aquatic animals to spineless and spined terrestrial creatures that rule this subcontinent. Each chapter introduces the readers to the up-to-date systematics of respective animal groups through clearly illustrated phylograms. An organism index provided at the end facilitates reverse look-up of binomial names based on common names, and therefore this work doubles as the first binomial encyclopedia of Indian Animals. Bioprospects and IUCN conservation status of taxa highlighted throughout the text and a
comprehensive glossary provided at the end makes this a first book of its kind – a must reference for all who care about animal biodiversity.
