"Excellent and very informative. . . . All the species present in the region are covered in detail with wonderful illustrations by Karen Phillipps. . . . The details provided on each mammal are comprehensive, informative and cover all 277 known land and marine mammals' species in the region."--Dato' Dr Amar-Singh, Bird Ecology Study Group

"This book is much more than a field guide, although it serves this purpose extremely well. . . . A number of sidebars provide information on particular ecological relationships (such as predator/prey), seed dispersal, and other notable facts. The writing is colorful yet professional. Overall, this is a very comprehensive work."--Choice
