The Indian Ocean island of Madagascar is one of the world's great natural treasures and ecotourism destinations. Despite being an island, it is home to nearly an entire continent’s variety of species, from the famous lemurs to a profusion of bizarre and beautiful birds, reptiles and amphibians. Wildlife of Madagascar is a compact and beautifully illustrated photographic guide, and an essential companion for any visitor or resident. With an eye-catching design, authoritative and accessible text and easy-to-use format, it provides information on identification, distribution, habitat, behaviour, biology and conservation for all the mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and butterflies likely to be seen.

  • The most comprehensive single-volume field guide to Madagascar’s wildlife
  • Attractive layout features more than 900 stunning colour photographs
  • Covers the mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and butterflies, and some of the other invertebrates and plants, most likely to be seen
  • Provides key information about identification, distribution, habitat, behaviour and conservation
  • Introductory sections provide background information on Madagascar and its unique environments

Ken Behrens is a naturalist and photographer who lives in Madagascar and works as a guide for Tropical Birding, a birdwatching, wildlife, and photography tour operator. Keith Barnes, a native of South Africa, is a founder and director of Tropical Birding. He holds a PhD from the Percy FitzPatrick Institute in African Ornithology at the University of Cape Town. Behrens and Barnes are also the authors of Birds of Kruger National Park (Princeton WILDGuides), Birding Ethiopia and Wild Rwanda.


"Wildlife of Madagascar is a field guide of great interest for ecotourists and curious readers. . . . This guide will be received well by field researchers, students, and natural historians."--Choice


"With lovely images and well-written text, Wildlife of Madagascar covers a lot of groups and species and fills an important niche for English-speaking ecotourists visiting the island. The text is organized to allow quick access to details about different groups in the wild."--Steven Goodman, Field Museum of Natural History
