The pictures are very clear and the description focuses on the distinguishing characters of each species. The descriptions are very logical and easy to follow... i.e. the blaze on the nose of this antelope is continuous therefore, it is species A, where the blaze on the nose of the next antelope (which looks just like species A) is not continuous, therefore it is species B.
The 2015 version has all the features the Stuart's are well known for. It is fuller.
The pictures are excellent and at least to me there seems to be more if them-- hard to say how much more but enough to really please me.
"Stuart's Feild guide to
Mammals of Southern Africa including Angola, Zambia and Malawi "
Authors as above.
It is well worth considering.
I have reviewed it.
I bought the Kindle version of this book.
I am viewing it on an IPad with a Retinal Screen.
The Mammals are grouped by Families-- the zoological Name is Given but examples of the Common Name are Given.
This gives quick ascess to the information
The text is fairly full. It covers identification, and details about the animal, whether they live in groups etc etc
There is a location map for where each animal is found
Often the animal is shown next to a full grown human to give you an idea of how high it stands of the ground.
Footprints are given where available with a scale in mm
Horn development by age are shown for Wildebeest and some Antelope
The photos are excellent.
Some species only get one one , others more
There is cross referencing in the text which takes you to the referenced spot.
I have learned a lot from looking through the book-- at present I am trying to get the various Antelope and related species into my head , so that I can identify them, and fit the right information to each group
Anyone travelling to South Africa - this reference book is a must, especially if you are interested in these unique and magnificient creatures.
