About this book

This book is both a celebration of the United Arab Emirates heritage and also a valuable reference for those who wish to delve deeper into the UAE's wildlife. The varied terrain has facilitated a diverse group of organisms to succeed; the rocky cliffs for exapmple are home for the surviving remnants of leopard and tahr populations, and a number of plants and animals have yet to be assigned scientific names. The country as a whole is a paradise for birders, who can log over 200 sightings in a single visit. Written by a group of amateur and professional naturalists, the book is based upon solid practical experience in the field.
