The third edition since 1985, this guide book is aimed at naturalists, zoologists, specialists, scholars and public at large with a keen interest in identifying the mammals of Borneo. It describes every species of wild mammal presently known in Borneo and its offshore islands: 221 species of wild land mammals have been recorded, of which 92 species are bats. Also included in A Field Guide to the Mammals of Borneo are descriptions of the more commonly encountered domestic animals which might be confused with wild ones, as well as a few species which have not definitely been recorded in Borneo but which are likely to be found in the area. Each mammal is beautifully illustrated in colour with brief notes on the species on the facing page. Concise and easy to use, A Field Guide to the Mammals of Borneo is an indispensable aid to greater awareness of this important segment of the fauna in Borneo.
"[...] an essential acquisition for anyone with an interest in the mammal fauna of the region."
