Field Guide to Indian Mammals

Published by Christopher Helm

India has a rich mammal fauna including elephants, rhinos and the much sought-after Tiger, but there are many other species to be found there, many of them more conspicuous than the elusive Tiger. This book is the first comprehensive field guide to all the 400 species of mammals in India. Most are illustrated with superb colour photographs or illustrations, and are accompanied by an authoritative text from one of India’s top biologists. The text pinpoints key characteristics of the species concerned, and gives useful distributional and habitat information. Maps are included for each species, and footprints too where relevant.
