This illustrated checklist covers Madagascar, one of the world’s highest-priority Biodiversity Hotspots, and country renowned for its amazing fauna and flora and especially its very large number of extraordinary endemic species. Madagascar is also one of the world’s four major regions for primates, with 112 endemic species and subspecies of lemur. Given Madagascar’s unique biodiversity, and the relative ease with which it can be observed and enjoyed, it should be one of the world’s premier ecotourism destinations, and this book is intended to facilitate such tourism.

This book will equip residents and visitors to the region with an easy-to-use resource that will allow them to quickly learn about the 253 terrestrial and marine mammals that occur there. The most up-to-date reference on the region’s mammals, it has a description and illustration of every mammal species and subspecies found on Madagascar, and also includes the mammals of the nearby islands of the Comoros, the Seychelles, Réunion and Mauritius, which are also part of the Madagascar and Indian Ocean Islands Hotspot.

This book is part of the Lynx Illustrated Checklists collection, created from the vast wealth of data, illustrations and maps compiled for the Handbook of the Mammals of the World series, that have been distilled into useful and portable books for your visits to specific destinations.
