Field Guide to the Mammals of Ecuador
The Field Guide to the Mammals of Ecuador is the most comprehensive work on Ecuadorian mammals in the history of the country. This first English edition describes near 430 native species, including those from the Galapagos Islands and, for the first time, the Ecuadorian Antarctic Zone. The text gives information on field marks (measurements, color patterns and anatomical features), natural history (ecology, biology and behavior), distribution and habitat (accompanied by 350 distribution maps), present status (condition, abundance and presence in protected areas) and local names (general as well as those used by 15 different indigenous groups in Ecuador). It also includes 560 color photographs displayed in 174 color plates. In addition, a guide to animal tracks, and selected references are included. The work will undoubtedly be of use to scientists, naturalists and students alike, as well as to anyone with an interest in Ecuadorian fauna.
