The most comprehensive field guide to the wildlife of Africa – a continent unparalleled in its ecological richness. All 577 stunning photographs are in full colour, featuring 50 habitats, 200 mammals, 300 birds, and many reptiles and insects. The text covers 850 species, with 470 species range maps. A separate section provides in-depth descriptions and detailed maps for 58 countries and island groups. This field guide will long outlive its use on safari to serve as a definitive resource on African wildlife.
Collins Guides are organised with a visual key. Taxonomically arranged photographs, keyed with helpful thumb-tab silhouettes, make identification quick and easy.
