9780007248186: Wildlife Of The Galapagos (Travellers Guide)

The islands of the Galapagos, situated off the coast of Ecuador in South America, are home to some of the world's most fascinating wildlife and are visited by thousands of tourists each year. This series is designed to give visitors to far-away places a handy identification guide to the wildlife they might see as they travel around. Featuring over 350 species of wildlife most likely to be encountered on a trip to these remote islands, this traveller's guide is the ideal companion for anyone travelling to this fascinating region of the world. Although perhaps best known for its Giant Tortoises, many other mammals, reptiles, coastal and marine life, birds, plants and invertebrates are also included. Illustrated with over 550 colour photographs, maps and drawings, it also includes maps of visitors' sites and information on the history, climate, geology and conservation of the islands.

About the Author:

Julian Fitter is a naturalist, conservationist, writer and lecturer with a particular interest in island ecosystems. Having been educated in the UK, Julian spent the next fifteen years in the Laboratory of Evolution in the Galapagos Islands, where he established and ran the first yacht charter operation when the islands received only a few hundred visitors each year. After that he spent time in the Falkland Islands, and more recently in Tristan da Cunha and New Zealand. David Hosking is a wildlife photographer who, together with his wife Jean, runs the Frank Lane Picture Agency, one of Britain's most prominent natural history photo libraries. He also runs Hosking Tours Ltd, a company that specialises in nature photographic holidays.

Review:

[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 Scientist
