At least 1 200 mam­mals oc­cur in Africa. Stuarts’ Field Guide to the Larger Mam­mals

of Africa con­cen­trates on the more vis­i­ble and eas­ily dis­tin­guished larger species, as well as some of the more frequently seen smaller mam­mals. This new edi­tion has been ex­ten­sively re­vised, ex­panded and re­designed and in­cludes the most re­cent re­search and tax­on­omy, re­vised dis­tri­bu­tion maps and many new images, colour-coded group­ing of or­ders, size icons and de­tailed de­scrip­tions of each species. The book pro­vides an un­der­stand­ing of key iden­ti­fi­ca­tion char­ac­ters, typ­i­cal be­hav­iour, pre­ferred habi­tat, food choice, re­pro­duc­tion and longevity. There is also a brand-new sec­tion on whales and dol­phins. Chris and Mathilde Stu­art are the ac­com­plished and re­spected au­thors of a range of books on African mam­mals, wildlife and con­ser­va­tion, as well as sci­en­tific pa­pers and pop­u­lar ar­ti­cles. Much of their time is spent trav­el­ling the world, search­ing for wild mam­mals and pro­mot­ing con­ser­va­tion. Visit www.stu­ar­ton­na­ for more in­for­ma­tion. Rec­om­mended re­tail price for Stuarts’ Field Guide to the Larger Mam­mals of Africa is R370.
