Sinopsis:

A spectacular tour of the world's largest wetland.

The Pantanal covers 81,000 square miles in the middle of South America, extending over parts of Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay.

About half the size of California and 20 times the size of the Everglades, the Pantanal flood plain is the largest wetland network on Earth.

Pantanal reveals the abundant wildlife and beauty of this remarkable eco-system, home to some of the most spectacular concentrations of flora and fauna on the planet.

The text explains the Pantanal's ecology, its people, plants and animals, presented in five chapters:

  • The Pantaneiro: People of the Pantanal
  • Wetlands
  • Grasslands
  • Forests of the Pantanal
  • Caiman: the comeback crocodile.

The book also examines the impact of deforestation, overfishing and overhunting in the Pantanal and the efforts by conservationists to protect this magnificent region for future generations.

Pantanal is a superbly photographed tour of one of the most memorable regions on the planet.

About the Author:

Theo Allofs is an award-winning wildlife and nature photographer, whose images regularly appear in Smithsonian, National Geographic, Outdoor Photographer, GEO and American Photo.

Russell A. Mittermeier is the president of Conservation International, of which all the authors are members.
