About this book

This is the first comprehensive English-language field guide to the wildlife of Chile and its territories - Chilean Antarctica, Easter Island, Juan Fernandez, and San Felix y San Ambrosio.

From bats to butterflies, lizards to llamas, and ferns to flamingos, A Wildlife Guide to Chile covers the country's common plants and animals. The colour plates depict species in their natural environments with unmatched vividness and realism. The combination of detailed illustrations and engaging, succinct, and authoritative text make field identification quick, easy, and accurate. Maps, charts, and diagrams provide information about landforms, submarine topography, marine environment, climate, vegetation zones, and the best places to view wildlife. This is an essential guide to Chile's remarkable biodiversity.

Media reviews

"There is an embarrassment of riches in field guides, but truly novel approaches are rare. Sharon Chester's Wildlife Guide to Chile is one of the few books that stand out by virtue of their content, organization, and comprehensiveness. In a single, portable volume, Chester presents nearly every natural gem that Chile has to offer – richly illustrated, tersely described, and, in many cases, presented for the very first time in any field guide. Naturalists everywhere will recognize Chester's dedication to this project; travelers to Chile will simply gush with appreciation."
– Edward S. Brinkley, editor-in-chief of the journal North American Birds.
