About this book

A guide to the wildlife of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Approximately 550 species are described, including all birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians known to inhabit the area, excluding open ocean species. Each species is illustrated and a distribution map is included with every entry. The species accounts contain a physical description, data on habitat and distribution, habits, diet, reproduction, conservation status, and one or more key references. Sections cover the major habitat types in the region (including descriptions and photos), physical geography, climate, and conservation challenges. In addition, the book has a glossary of nearly 400 technical terms. An appendix contains descriptions of casual, accidental, hypothetical, and extinct species, an index allows readers to locate specific information quickly, and a thorough bibliography suggests additional reading.

Written by a respected scientist, "Wildlife of the Mid-Atlantic" provides the only complete summary of information on all the terrestrial species of the area, based on the most recent research.
