The dromedary is a prime source of livelihood of the peoples of North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, and may indeed be the main souce of protein in these areas by the year 2000. This well-illustrated sourcebook presents the first complete and systematic anatomical description of the dromedary, useful not only to zoologists and veterinarians but also to archeozoologists, who will be able to use the illustrations of the bones to identify camel and cameloid osteological material. Drawn by the American artist David Mazierski, the pictures are outstanding in clarity and remarkably detailed.
