The Alps remain one of Europe's foremost tourist destinations – not just for its world-famous scenery, but also its remarkable and diverse wildlife. This wild diversity is covered in this new field guide to the region.

Field Guide to Alpine Wildlife covers all of the animals and plants you are likely to see on a trip to this extraordinary place including mammals such as Mouflon and Ibex, birds like Bearded Vulture, White-winged Snowfinch and Wallcreeper, and a diversity of insects and wildflowers that will stop even seasoned wildlife-watchers in their tracks. It is packed with photography of each species, with photos carefully chosen to help pinpoint key identification criteria.

Portable and pocket-friendly – crucial for all travellers in this mountainous region – this book is an essential companion for anyone visiting or walking through this spectacular part of central Europe.
