The answers and information provided by our field guide, Trevor touch on areas as all-encompassing as the environment, climate, geology, astronomy, animal diseases and management practices.

Once again there are hundreds of full-colour photographs, not just portraits, but photographs showing the subjects in all manner of illuminating circumstances.
