South-East Asia is one of the richest parts of the world in terms of mammals, with species new to science still being described on a regular basis. This guide provides a comprehensive overview of the wide variety of wildlife to be found in South-East Asia. Over 192 key species are described in the book, and each description is supported by a clear colour photograph taken where possible in the mammal's natural habitat. The guide covers mainland South-East Asia, including Myanmar through Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia, and south to Malaysia. The mammals featured embrace spectacular species like the Asian Elephant, Sumatran Tiger and Orang-utan, as well as smaller animals such as the Sumatran Shrew-Mouse, Flying Lemur and a variety of bats. A detailed account of each species explains identification characteristics, habitat and behaviour.
Charles M. Francis works at the National Wildlife Research Centre, of the Canadian Wildlife Service and is an expert on the mammals of South-East Asia. He has travelled extensively in the region and is the author of New Holland's A Field Guide to the Mammals of South-East Asia.
