An invaluable reference and exceptionally usable guide to the mammals of India. Covering the rich diversity of mammal species in India, from tigers, elephants, rhinos and whales to primates, rodents and bats, Indian Mammals is a comprehensive, field-ready and illustrated guide to the mammals of India. Accompanied by superb full-colour photographs and distribution maps and based on impeccable scientific research reviewed by experts, it records details of virtually every mammal known to exist in India. The in-depth, up-to-date text by Vivek Menon, one of India's leading naturalists and an authority on Indian wildlife, describes key identification features, biometrics, behaviour, social strategies, habitat and distribution. Encyclopedic in sweep yet accessible in approach, Indian Mammals includes the majestic and most sought-after as well as the extraordinary and elusive mammals. Passionate wildlife watchers will appreciate the range of coverage and tips on identifying mammals, while naturalists will value the exacting detail needed to distinguish similar species in the field. Especially planned for easy reference, this compact guide is the essential resource for wild-lifers of any age, from animal watchers and eco-tourists to active conservationists.
