About: Wildlife of Southern Africa

Wildlife of Southern Africa has been written for all who enjoy nature and seek to learn about it. Its primary purpose is to enable readers to identify and name over 2000 wild plants and animals that they are most likely to find in southern Africa. Each chapter has been written by a leading expert in the field, most of whom have published major works in their own right. Each group is colour-coded for easy reference. The enormous wealth and diversity of wildlife in this subcontinent have long fascinated naturalists and scientists, and the national parks and nature reserves of the region have become internationally renowned. In the past, the reputation of these conserved areas rested mainly on the big game species, but today many people are aware of-and more interested in the entire diversity of nature and the complex plant and animal communities that constitute the ecosystem.
