Synopsis: The mammals that inhabit Madagascar are among the most extraordinary in the world. This portable guide offers a full survey and classification of all the Malagasy mammals, both endemic and introduced, including many new species only recently identified. With vivid color photographs, line illustrations, and maps, Mammals of Madagascar: A Complete Guide is an essential volume for any tourist or biologist who visits the island or wishes to. The guide provides descriptions of the physical and behavioral characteristics of each species as well as information about habitat and distribution. To further aid identification, the book lists top mammal-watching sites in the rainforests, deciduous forests, and spiny forest areas. Streamlined and completely updated, this book replaces Nick Garbutt?s classic earlier work, Mammals of Madagascar, and takes its place as the definitive guide to the mammals of the world?s fourth-largest island. Published in association with Christopher Helm/A & C Black Publishers Ltd.

Product Description: This title is a reduced format field guide adaptation of the highly acclaimed Pica Press book Mammals of Madagascar. Madagascar has a unique mammal fauna. Of the 184 species, at least 103 are found nowhere else on earth. It is best known for its 33 species of lemur, but there are also a great variety of tenrecs, bats, rodents, viverrids and mongooses. As the only mammal taxa present on Madagascar, these groups have demonstrated remarkable adaptive radiation, giving rise to some of the most remarkable species in the world, such as the witch-like Aye-aye, the elegant Fosa and the bizarre Hedgehog Tenrecs. Anyone interested in mammals will hope to explore Madagascar's extraordinary assemblage of species, and this is the perfect identification guide for the island.
