Field Guide to Wildlife of the Gambia   layout image

by David Penney

The Gambia, located on the coast of tropical West Africa, supports a diverse range of habitat types, from forests to mangrove swamps, savannah grasslands and coastal ecosystems. It has a rich and diverse flora and fauna, which for some groups such as birds and mammals is relatively well known. However, for groups such as arachnids and most insect orders very little information is available. In this relatively small volume, the author provides close-up macrophotographs and notes on the biology of more than 700 non-marine species, including those most likely to be seen by the vigilant nature lover during a short visit to the country. Many of the species represent the first records for the country and several will almost certainly be new to science. The focus of this guide is identification in the field, so text has been kept to a bare minimum. It is a must for anybody with even a passing interest in the wildlife of The Gambia and West Africa. Illustration type: Colour photographs, 160pp. 2nd edition. 2012

Grey Daggers and Minotaurs in Greenwich Park; Memories of a London Schoolboy Naturalist in the 1940s   layout image

by John F Burton

This evocative book is based on the illustrated Natural History diaries that the author, John F. Burton, began writing in 1942 and has maintained ever since. It is the story of how one young South East London boy, amidst the war-time experience of the Battle of Britain and the onslaught of the Blitz and the V1 and V2 attacks on London, developed his nascent interest and fascination with birds, butterflies, beetles and other British wildlife species into a post-war professional life dedicated to ornithology and natural history. Many of his diary entries with accompanying drawings and photographs are reproduced in the book, and recall with immediacy and freshness his memories of those now-distant days and field trips. Although the 1940s are long gone this ageless book will pique the interest of all generations fascinated by wildlife. Illustration type: B/W illustrations, B/W photographs, 436pp. 2014
