"This slim volume by Menon (executive director, Wildlife Trust of India) contains an extraordinary amount of information. Intended as a field guide for the nonprofessional, it fulfills that role well." --Choice
"This is an excellent and much needed modern guide. It might not be detailed enough for a serious researcher, but it is great for the visitor. It is easy to use, with a lot of quality information packed into a book that only measures 21.5 x 14 x 1 cms. . . . Buy the book and visit India soon." --Roy John, Canadian Field Naturalist
" Mammals of India is . . . a useful introduction to the large variety of mammals inhabiting the Indian subcontinent and the waters around its shores. For first-time visitors it provides a taste of the mammalian fauna of the country and where specific animals might be expected to be found. I know of no other pocket guide that fills this niche." --James A. Matteoni, Discovery
The vast and beautiful Indian subcontinent is home to an incredibly rich diversity of mammals, including mighty tigers, elephants, and rhinos, as well as primates, pandas, hyenas, and many more. Mammals of India is the most comprehensive and field-ready illustrated guide to Indian mammals available. It covers 400 species--virtually every mammal known to exist in India--and includes more than 350 full-color photographs as well as 85 color distribution maps for easy reference to India's largest and most majestic species. The detailed text, written by one of India's leading wildlife authorities, describes key identification features, biometrics, behavior, and status. There's also an invaluable section on similar species for hard-to-identify mammals such as bats and rodents. This durable and user-friendly photographic guide is designed especially for use in the field, but it's also the ideal book for armchair adventurers.
