About the Author:

Jonathan Kingdon is one of the world's foremost authorities on the mammals of Africa, and also a highly acclaimed artist. American Scientist listed Kingdon's East African Mammals: An Atlas of Evolution in Africa as "one of a hundred books that shaped science in the twentieth century." This pocket guide has been adapted from his classic Kingdon Field Guide to African Mammals.

Review:

Jonathan Kingdon loves biology and art. This felicitous combo delivers a delightful book. . . . His knowledge is impressive, and his drawings and paintings wonderful, full of information and character. . . . A great guide, from leaf-plucking gelada to long-eared hedgehog. Take it to any African country.---Maggie McDonald, New Scientist

Anyone with an interest in Africa and the animals that roam through the various ecosystems, from lowland rainforests, savannahs, grasslands, to deserts and shrublands, should invest in a copy of noted African mammal expert Jonathan Kingdon's pocket guide of African mammals. . . . [T]he book [is] perfect for serious fieldwork and the vacation traveler. (Biology Digest)
