[Today] you'll find more than a dozen recent field guides to the wildlife of this most famous of archipelagos. But of the general guides, "Wildlife of the Gal pagos" is by far the most complete and convenient. Well-organized, nicely illustrated and clearly written, it manages the delicate balance between breadth and depth, while covering all major groups of both land and marine animals and plants. -- Adrian Barnett, New ScientistReseña del editor:
