This is the fully updated and extended third edition of this practical, highly illustrated volume in the Bradt Travel Guides series, written by two professional Galápagos guides. The book introduces the history and ecosystems of the islands and then devotes informative chapters to plants, invertebrates, reptiles, birds (including 22 endemic species), mammals, the seashore and underwater. A chapter describes landings and visitor sites with colour trail plans.
David Horwell, a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, is a tour operator, photographer and writer specialising in the Galápagos. Pete Oxford is a professional naturalist, based in Ecuador, who leads trips to the islands.
