Rate this:
Bradt's fully illustrated wildlife guides focus on regions of the world particularly celebrated for their amazing and often unique species. With spectacular photography or exclusive watercolour drawings throughout, each visitors' guide provides an introduction to the region's principal flora and fauna alongside suggested wildlife itineraries, practical information on when to go and what to take and photography tips. Written in a deliberately engaging way, they offer something different from dry field guides, and will appeal to the interested layman as much as the wildlife devotee. Ideal as a lightweight companion to any wildlife trip they also make a handsome souvenir. New Zealand's geographical isolation has allowed an abundance of unique and unusual flora and fauna to flourish. Famous for its flightless birds such as the emblematic kiwi and the endangered takahe, it is also home to lizard-like tuataras, giant kauri trees and a rich coastal marine life. Full-colour throughout, New Zealand Wildlife provides a comprehensive overview of the natural history of the major islands of the archipelago.Thorough background information on geology, geography and palaeontology is coupled with extensive wildlife and habitat listings.
