About this book

Mammals of South Asia, Volume 1 is a complete guide to the mammals of South Asia, lavishly illustrated with colour plates and photos. The species accounts cover all aspects of field identification, including in-depth sections on distribution, behaviour, status and population. Anyone interested in the wildlife of the subcontinent will find this book an invaluable aid to identifying and understanding the region's diverse mammalian fauna.

Mammals of South Asia, Volume 1 covers insectivores, bats, primates, canids and felids, while Volume 2 focuses on marine mammals, elephant, rhinoceros, bovids, cervids, and rodents. Over 75 authors have contributed on areas of specialised research. Many of the species, like the Arunachal macaque, are covered in such detail for the first time in a popular publication.
