The first handbook with descriptions and illustrations of all Iceland's main bird, mammal and plant species. An ideal traveller's companion, it provides information on both nesting birds and visitors, a total of 119 species. In addition to descriptions of all Icelandic sea and land mammals, there are 220 plant species - making it possible to identify practically all Icelandic plants. All species are shown with drawings for quick and simple identification of whatever bird, animal or plant may cross the traveller's path. Maps show the distribution of nesting birds, mammals and plants, along with their Icelandic names.
