Synopsis: The first of its kind, this spectacularly illustrated book is the only complete guide to the wildlife and natural history of the vast and beautiful Antarctic region. Covering the Antarctic continent, the southern ocean, and the subantarctic islands, this guide illustrates all of the region's breeding birds and marine mammals with stunning color photographs. In addition to the color plates, it features distribution maps and up-to-date species accounts expertly detailing abundance, seasonal status, and conservation prospects. The volume also covers numerous nonbreeding species, migrants, and vagrants. Regional chapters describe all of the subantarctic islands, in addition to most regularly visited sites in Antarctica, and are accompanied by maps of each area and photographs of each locale. These chapters present detailed information on geography, climate, geology, general ecology, and flora. They also address conservation efforts - past, present, and planned. The book concludes with practical information about visiting the area, including details on the best-available landing sites and notes on seasonal weather conditions. This is an indispensable companion for a trip far south, as well as an informative volume for anyone interested in the Antarctic region's remarkable, occasionally strange, and frequently beautiful animals. It features 35 color plates and over 600 color photographs. It illustrates and maps the distribution of all of the region's breeding birds and marine mammals. It includes information on many non-breeders, migrants, and vagrants. It features expert text reflecting recent advances in taxonomy. It covers all of the subantarctic islands as well as Antarctica's regularly visited sites. It offers travel tips, including weather considerations and landing sites.

Winner of the 2002 Best Bird Book - Oceans and Islands, Worldtwitch

"This book contains more of the natural history of the Great White Continent in a single volume than any other book you are likely to find. . . . [It] goes well beyond describing the mammals and birds, offering a general treatise on the natural history of Antarctica." --Charles F. Wurster, Quarterly Review of Biology

"With the growth of interest in ecotourism, conservation, and research in Antarctica and the Southern Oceans comes a demand for an accurate, comprehensive guide to the area's wildlife, and this is it! . . . The plates . . . are among the best I have ever seen in any guide. . . . This is without a doubt the most authoritative guide to the region's wildlife." --Wildlife Activist

" The Complete Guide to Antarctic Wildlife is a remarkable book, probably the most complete general work on the topic ever produced, with more than 500 color photographs, 35 color plates and a 381-item bibliography. But these numbers tell only part of the story. The photographs are, almost without exception, simply terrific, representing the best work of 52 different photographers, each shot chosen for it beauty or its ability to show a particular aspect of the animal¹s identifying characteristics. . . . [An] amazing and valuable book." --Jeff Rubin, The Polar Times
