A well illustrated guide to the larger mammals of the Indian subcontinent, including all 106 species that can be identified in the field with a reasonable degree of certainty.

There are concise descriptions of each species, covering identification, habitat, range and status, followed by colour plates of animals and black & white plates of tracks. The final section details 23 national parks and protected areas chosen for superior mammal watching potential. An excellent introduction to the region's mammal fauna.
