Shirihai - A complete guide to Antarctic wildlife
This book is the first complete guide to the birds and
marine mammals of the Antarctic regions and the Southern
Ocean, combining an in-depth, conventionally illustrated
field-guide approach with extensive use of photographs,
as well as providing a detailed region-by-region account
of the area's wildlife and natural history.
It is the perfect guidebook for every Antarctic and Southern
Ocean voyage, and includes: 600 photographs covering all
aspects of the region's natural history, 35 plates illustrating
all of the indigenous birds and marine mammals, a detailed
text representing a new approach to the identification and
taxonomy of the birds and marine mammals.
The book also includes a site guide for those areas of
greatest interest and importance to visitors to the Antarctic
and subantarctic; and some additional sites of interest
around the main portals to the region, southern South America,
South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
This book is the result of a considerable body of international
expertise, as many of the world's experts on the region's
wildlife have contributed extensively to the text.
