About this book

The land south of California's Tehachapi Mountains is home to a diverse landscape and climate. Marine and coastal zones, rugged mountains and the inland deserts of the Mojave and Colorado all contribute to a unique variety of local ecologies.

The Southern California Nature Guide is a handy aid for area residents and visitors alike in identifying the animals and plants you'll find when visiting the region's great outdoors. Each species is portrayed by an accurate hand-drawn color illustration. Accompanying text presents the common and scientific names of the species, descriptions of size and other identifying characteristics, natural history and fascinating facts, and where you can expect to find that species.

Southern California Nature Guide is conveniently organized by color-coded categories: mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles, fish, invertebrates, trees, shrubs, herbs, grasses and ferns. A full-color quick identification guide, an index and an illustrated glossary are among the features designed to enhance ease of use for the reader.
