The islands of the Galapagos, situated off the coast of Ecuador in South America, are home to some of the world's most fascinating wildlife and are visited by thousands of tourists each year. This series of books is designed to give visitors to faraway places a handy identification guide to the wildlife they might see as they travel around the world. The fully updated and revised edition of this classic guide features a wealth of additional information, including a new 16-page section of visitor sites with maps, 85 additional species of fish and over 100 new photographs. Although perhaps best known for its Giant Tortoises, many other mammals, reptiles, coastal and marine life, birds, plants and invertebrates are also included. Illustrated with over 650 colour photographs, maps and drawings, it also includes information on the history, climate, geology and conservation of the islands. Featuring over 400 species of wildlife most likely to be encountered on a trip to these remote islands, this traveller's guide is the ideal companion for anyone travelling to this fascinating region of the world.
