About this book

Language: English, with English, Chinese and scientific nomenclature

Northwest Yunnan in China has been identified as a biodiversity hotspot of global importance, but its plant and animal life remain poorly known among naturalists. This photographic field guide presents a synthesis of information drawn from first hand observations and surveys on the flora and fauna of the Golden Monkey National Park and Baimaxueshan Nature Reserve. This region harbours a mixture of plants from the subtropical and temperate realm including a wide variety of rhododendrons; it also boasts the largest population of the charismatic and endangered Yunnan Snub-nosed Monkey and is home to a fascinating array of bird species including a number of spectacular pheasants. Field Guide to the Flora and Fauna of the Golden Monkey National Park / Baimaxueshan Nature Reserve, Yunnan, China covers plants, fungi, birds, reptiles, amphibians and mammals, with more than 400 species (some representing new records for the region) photo-documented in full colour, with accompanying field notes.
