    DescriptionThe islands of the Galapagos, situated off the coast of Ecuador in South America, are home to some of the world's most fascinating wildlife and are visited by thousands of tourists each year. This series is designed to give visitors to far-away places a handy identification guide to the wildlife they might see as they travel around. Featuring over 350 species of wildlife most likely to be encountered on a trip to these remote islands, this traveller's guide is the ideal companion for anyone travelling to this fascinating region of the world. Although perhaps best known for its Giant Tortoises, many other mammals, reptiles, coastal and marine life, birds, plants and invertebrates are also included. Illustrated with over 550 colour photographs, maps and drawings, it also includes maps of visitors' sites and information on the history, climate, geology and conservation of the islands.

    Review quote
    [Today] you'll find more than a dozen recent field guides to the wildlife of this most famous of archipelagos. But of the general guides, "Wildlife of the Gal pagos" is by far the most complete and convenient. Well-organized, nicely illustrated and clearly written, it manages the delicate balance between breadth and depth, while covering all major groups of both land and marine animals and plants. -- Adrian Barnett, New Scientist
