Chris and Mathilde Stuart, authors of Stuarts’ Field Guide to the Larger Mammals of Africa, are the highly regarded authors of a range of books on African mammals, wildlife and conservation, as well as scientific papers and popular articles. Much of their time is spent travelling the world, searching for wild mammals and promoting their conservation.
This comprehensive field guide boasts more than 700 full-colour photos, concentrates on the more visible and easily distinguished larger species, as well as some of the more frequently seen smaller mammals. This new edition has been extensively revised, expanded and redesigned and includes the most recent research and taxonomy, revised distribution maps and many new images, a colour-coded grouping of orders, detailed descriptions of each species, offering insight into identification characters, typical behaviour, preferred habitat, food choice, reproduction and longevity. Whales and dolphins are now featured too.
