About this book

This volume covers the southern half of South America. After discussing the historical biogeography and contemporary habitats of the region, the authors provide accounts for 360 indigenous species. Each taxonomic group is considered as a whole, and within a worldwide geographical context. A major work, and a vital one considering the current loss of biodiversity in South America.
