about

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.

". . . Garbutt's new guide is a needed addition to the literature on Madagascar's fauna, as it provides abundant information, including superb photographs and species' distribution maps on the entire radiation of Madagascar's unique mammals."—Frank P Cuozzo, The Quarterly Review of Biology
