Product description

Review

"Unique. . . . The text is as up-to-date as one can get. . . . The day [this book] reaches the bookstore shelf, I cannot conceive anyone going to the Galapagos without [it] in hand."--Noble S. Proctor




"In classic field guide style, identification text is included opposite the color plates. A checklist of regularly occurring species provides a summary of habitat preferences and island distribution of each species. Nicely done."--Wildlife Activist "This book is highly recommended to anyone from novice to expert naturalist who is planning to visit the Galapagos to observe and study the wildlife of these enchanting islands."--Wildlife Activist "Anyone traveling to the Galapagos Islands should have a copy."--Choice "This book adds to the many Galapagos field guides, but is sufficiently different to make it a significant contribution to the guidebook literature of these islands. . . . The presentation is effective and the images sufficient to help the casual traveler identify most of the birds and reptiles. . . . It should be a very useful guide for the average visitor to these unusual islands that are suffering from too many tourist visits."--ARBA (American Reference Books Annual 2003) "I am happy to recommend this as the essential field companion for Galapagos visitors with a vertebrate orientation."--The Quarterly Review of Biology "A comprehensive field guide which will certainly aid anyone visiting these charming islands with their identification of any bird, mammal or reptile which they possibly might encounter. . . . Anyone planning a forthcoming trip to the Galapagos Islands, or just having an interest in Charles Darwin and the historical aspect of these unique islands will certainly want this indispensable and valuable treasure with them on their trip."--Harlan D. Walley, Bulletin of the Maryland Herpetological Society "Anyone interested in these unique equatorial islands west of South America will find this a must-have guide to a truly exceptional locale."--Porthole Cruise Magazine
