About this book

This new, larger format edition of the best-selling and well known The Wildlife of Southern Africa: A Field Guide to the Animals and Plants of the Region is designed to provide an even more user-friendly manual, with larger text and bigger, clearer images. Fully updated with the latest taxonomy and common names, it features over 2000 carefully selected plants and animals, large and small, that are likely to be encountered during a visit to any part of the region. More than 1200 species are vividly illustrated and many more are identifiable from the text through reference to similar species. Each group is colour-coded for easy reference and, for quick identification, diagnostic features are in bold text within the concise descriptions. Written by leading experts in the field, this larger illustrated guide covers all the major groups of plants and animals in the southern African region, making it the ideal companion for all who venture outdoors – visitors to game parks, hikers, holiday-makers, birders and gardeners.
