About this title:
"Francis has excellent credentials, having written articles and other books on the mammals of Southeast Asia. . . . The introduction shows a full-page map of the area encompassed by the book. Other pages provide techniques for identifying mammals, methods for finding and studying them, and explanations of the different levels of conservation status--endangered, threatened, etc. Seventy-two good quality colored plates of each species are accompanied by facing pages that show a distribution map and a short account of the species, its size, and a concise description." --H.N. Cunningham, Choice
