This new edition of the best-selling and well-known illustrated field guide to the animals and plants of southern Africa is fully updated with all the latest taxonomy and common names. It features over 2,000 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 1,200 species are vividly illustrated and many more are identifiable from the text through reference to similar species.

Each chapter has been written by a leading expert in the field, most of whom have published major works in their own right. Each group is color coded for easy reference; for quick identification, diagnostic features are in bold text within the concise descriptions. It would be hard to find a more useful field guide that covers all the major groups of plants and animals in the southern African region. This is the ideal companion for all who venture outdoors—visitors to game parks, hikers, vacationers, birders, game viewers and gardeners.

Review:

"A handsomely illustrated field guide to the birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians, insects, fish and plants of Southern Africa all in one compact volume. While necessarily condensed, it features 2,000 illustrations and short descriptions of each species including habitat and range. With contributions by experts and good color plates. A nice overview for even the keen naturalist; it covers -- for example -- over 600 of the 900 species of birds found in the region."--Longitudebooks.com
