The Safari Companion

Description
Since its original publication in 1993, The Safari Companion has been the best field guide to observing and understanding the behaviour of African mammals. An indispensable tool for naturalists traveling to Africa, this new edition has been revised to acknowledge the enthusiasm to those watching these magnificent animals at zoos and wildlife parks, and on film. The Safari Companion enables readers to recognise and interpret visible behavioural activities, such as courtship rituals, territorial marking, aggression, and care of young.

Each account of over 80 species includes a behavioural table in which the unique actions of the hoofed mammals, carnivores, and primates are described for easy reference. In addition, useful maps show the major national boundaries, vegetation zones, and game parks relevant to the guide. The book includes an extensive glossary, as well as tips on wildlife photography, a list of organisations working to protect African wildlife, and advice on where and when to see the animals.
