About this book

A well illustrated guide to the larger mammals of the Indian subcontinent, including all 106 species that can be identified in the field with a reasonable degree of certainty. Introductory chapters describe the main geographical regions, conservation, and tips to observing mammals. There are concise descriptions of each species, covering identification, habitat, range and status, followed by colour plates of animals and black & white plates of tracks. The final section details 23 national parks and protected areas chosen for superior mammal watching potential. An excellent introduction to the region's mammal fauna.
NB: Now out-of-print it has been reprinted by Academic Press as Field Guide to the Mammals of the Indian Subcontinent (1998).
