View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

More comprehensive than a field guide yet more accessible than an academic text, this completely revised and fully updated favorite reference answers fundamental questions about mammals and birds in the African bush such as How does an elephant's trunk work? Is the cheetah really the fastest animal? and Why do some bird species sit on animals? Ideal for anyone who has ever wanted to know why animals walk in line, how they see at night, or why they have the coloring they do, Beat about the Bush is the most comprehensive bush and field companion available.  Photographs, charts, and tables accompany the question-and-answer format, making this all-in-one guide user-friendly for both wildlife enthusiasts and professionals.

Book Description Jacana Media (Pty) Ltd, South Africa, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised &Amp; Updated ed.. Language: English. Brand new Book. In 2005, when the first Beat about the bush was published, it was an instant success and everyone wanted more. Instead of simply reprinting the book, Trevor Carnaby decided to expand the content - and publish two separate titles: Beat about the bush mammals and Beat about the bush birds. Now, in response to overwhelming popular demand, Trevor has completely revised and updated the original favourite comprehensive book. The book answers everything you ever wanted to know about birds and mammals, including the questions you didn't even think you had: Have you ever wondered why birds have feathers? Or how they don't fall off branches while sleeping? Have you ever wanted to know why animals walk in line, how they see at night, or why they have the colouring they do? Beat about the Bush is the most comprehensive bush and field companion available. In addition, it is set in a question and user-friendly answer format. The result is an insightful reference book in a style that appeals to novices, birders, tourists, bush enthusiasts and field guides alike. Seller Inventory # UGH9781431408535
