About this book

Wildlife of North America is the first volume to present a checklist of all 4,000 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, freshwater fish, butterflies, dragonflies, and damselflies found in the United States and Canada. Each species listing includes the common and scientific name, conservation status, a checkbox for sightings, and ample space to record the place, date, and details of the sighting. The listings are based on the most-recent scientific findings and include hundreds of changes not found in current field guides, as well as 150 species recently described as new or elevated from a subspecies level. A unique feature is the wealth of information Whit Bronaugh provides on biodiversity, zoogeography, extinct species, and current taxonomy to broaden the reader's general knowledge of North American fauna.
