About this book

From the author of East African Mammals this wonderful guide combines Jonathan Kingdon's long personal experience of Africa and his artistic talent to produce a field guide to all the known species of African land mammal. With a concise text the guide provides full information on identification, distribution, ecology, evolutionary relationships and conservation status. The focus is always on the mammals as seen in the field and on their ecology and evolutionary interrelationships. Introductory profiles summarise the characteristics of the various mammal groups, and coverage of several more complex groups of small mammals is simplified by reference to genera, though all 1150 African species are listed. The most up-to-date identification and species list is employed. Twelve newly recognised species of bushbaby, fourteen newly named baboons, guenons and mangabeys and nine newly recognised colubus monkeys contribute to the most modern treatment of the primates. New species of bats, rodents and fox are also included as well as a fully revised listing of the duikers, squirrels, and genets.
