India has a rich mammal fauna including elephants, rhinos and the much sought-after tiger, but there are many other species to be found there,many of them more conspicuous than the elusive tiger. Field Guide to Indian Mammals is the first comprehensive field guide to all the 400 species of mammals in India. Most are illustrated with superb colour photographs or illustrations, and are accompanied by an authoritative text from one ofIndia's top biologists. The text pinpoints key characteristics of the species concerned, and gives useful distributional and habitat information. Maps are included for each species, and footprints too where relevant.
