New pocket identification guide to all African land mammals by one of the world's leading naturalists. It is an adaptation of the original (The Kingdon Field Guide to African Mammals).The greatly condensed text focuses on essential information such as identification and distribution, while the author's superb illustrations have been rearranged into an easy-to-use plate format and placed opposite the text. Complex and more obscure groups like the bats and certain rodent families are summarised by genera.
Jonathan Kingdon is one of the world's foremost authorities on African mammals, as well as an accomplished artist.
Excellent, comprehensive field guide so you can tell your puku from your lechwe. BBC Wildlife Magazine (Feb 2006)
