A Complete Guide to Antarctic Wildlife
This is the first complete guide to the natural history and wildlife of this vast region.
'This is the definitive single-volume guide to the birds and mammals of the vast Antarctic region...this will be invaluable to those interested in the region, whilst indispensible for those planning a trip south.' Good Book Guide (December 07).
'There is a very "live" feel to this book...However, [Shirihai's] style is sufficiently scientific to deliver the necessary detail...Most importantly, he promotes the love and protection of what should be one of the world's most cherished wild places.' W2 Books (Jan 2008)
'Each species account in the book majors on identification, but also includes summaries of distribution and biology, conservation and taxonomy, and ocean-going birds and mammals get a range map.' Birdwatch (Main) March 2008
