Synopsis

Antarctica a Guide to the Wildlife by Dafila Scott, Tony Soper

Bradt's fully illustrated wildlife guides focus on regions of the world particularly celebrated for their amazing and often unique species. With spectacular photography or exclusive watercolour drawings throughout, each visitors' guide provides an introduction to the region's principal flora and fauna alongside suggested wildlife itineraries, practical information on when to go and what to take and photography tips. Written in a deliberately engaging way, they offer something different from dry field guides, and will appeal to the interested layman as much as the wildlife devotee. Ideal as a lightweight companion to any wildlife trip they also make a handsome souvenir. This is a superbly illustrated and attractive new edition of this traveller's companion to the wildlife of the Antarctic wilderness. Dafila Scott's illustrations provide the perfect accompaniment to naturalist Tony Soper's immaculate text. This guide provides full coverage of plumage and identification, breeding and nesting, feeding and the best locations to observe the varied species to be found in Antarctica.

Reviews

'Most of us visiting the deep South are doing so for the first time and thirst for some authoritative guidance. Here, at last, is the book we have been waiting for.'
Sir David Attenborough

'Sensational! The most concise and accurate account on the market.'
Peter Harrison, top ornithologist

'For anyone Antarctica-bound, this is the book. Tony Soper's facts and Dafila Scott's drawings cover the essentials of all the living things you will see and introduce the drama of the stage itself.'
Keith Shackleton

'Until you get into the groove, all penguins can look alike. This book will help you tell your chinstraps from your Adelies, while also helping you to identify flighted birds, seals, dolphins and whales. Geographical Magazine '...I always had Antarctica : A Guide to the Wildlife on hand'
Sara Wheeler
