Product Description


"Francis has excellent credentials, having written articles and other books on the mammals of Southeast Asia. . . . The introduction shows a full-page map of the area encompassed by the book. Other pages provide techniques for identifying mammals, methods for finding and studying them, and explanations of the different levels of conservation status--endangered, threatened, etc. Seventy-two good quality colored plates of each species are accompanied by facing pages that show a distribution map and a short account of the species, its size, and a concise description."--H.N. Cunningham, Choice

"Both field guide and handbook, A Guide to the Mammals of Southeast Asia is an important reference for professionals and a very intriguing book for anyone interested in wildlife."--Wildlife Activist

"Francis's work is a monumental step in raising awareness of these secretive creatures. The book will definitely come with me on my next trip to Southeast Asia."--Luis Ruedas, Quarterly Review of Biology

"This book has already proven very useful in my research and I anticipate relying on it for many years to come. Without it, sources of information would be scattered widely and difficult to find."--Jacob A. Esselstyn, Journal of Mammalian Evolution

From the Back Cover

"This is the first field guide to the mammals of Southeast Asia covering every known species--from elephants and tigers down to the smallest shrews and mice. Mainland Southeast Asia has seen a decade-long resurgence in mammal research, and this book is an important and long-awaited resource to anyone interested in the region's spectacular mammal diversity."--Darrin Lunde, American Museum of Natural History

Exactly what I needed 13 May 2014

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It is exactly what I needed to help me with my thesis on conservation biology!

It has illustrations of most animals, which helps to "put a face" on my case studies.
