Paperback, 2. Auflage, 440 Seiten,

(Südafrika), Februar 2005, ISBN 1-77007-061-3
Synopsis: "This is the first
comprehensive field guide to the insect fauna of South Africa, with detailed descriptions of over 1,200 of
the most common, most economically and ecologically important, and most interesting and attractive insects
in the region. The easy-to-read text is matched with superb photography. Each account covers identification,
biology, distribution and related species, and is accompanied by a colour photograph of the species or
family. Given the spectacular insect fauna of the region, this guide should enliven even the shortest walk
in veld or garden. Many of the species described occur widely in the rest of Africa and further afield,
making the book useful to professional and amateur entomologists world-wide. Apart from its use to
entomologists, it will be of value to students, nature conservation officers, game rangers, gardeners,
farmers, tourists and anyone with an interest in natural history."
Verleger: "About 900 bird species
have been recorded in the more than two million hectares that comprise the Kruger National
Park - an amazing diversity. This wonderful reference is divided into more than 100 plates, each of
which groups similar birds that are often difficult to distinguish in the field. Additional photographs
illustrate differences between males and females, and between adult and mature plumage. The easy-to-read
introduction details the prime birding localities within the Park;
additional features, such as that on characteristic nests, combine to make this the essential guide for the
visiting bird watcher."

Field Guide to the Insects of the
Kruger National Park (2nd Edition)
Verleger: "The author describes, in
detail, each group of insects, its lifecycle, food and feeding methods, habits and habitats. The groups are
illustrated by full-colour photographs. The handy volume has been written and designed to make a vast and
confusing subject as understandable as possible to the general reader: technical details and terminology
have been kept to a minimum. The text is clear and is easy to read, and will be invaluable to identification
at the camps and picnic sites and on wilderness trails. It also has broader relevance - the insect groups
are representative of the invertebrate life found in many other parts of southern Africa."
Verleger: "The Kruger National
Park in Southern Africa boasts a huge variety of mammals, ranging from bushbabies to elephants; this
book describes all the mammalian species known to occur in the Park.
Detailed information is provided on the distribution and habitat, diet, reproduction, physical
characteristics and behaviour of each species, as well as predation rates and percentage kills - unique and
specific to the Kruger National
Park. Each description contains details in a summary box, providing the reader with accessible and
pertinent information at a glance. Where relevant, spoor drawings have been included alongside the text.
Accompanying each description are full-colour photographs to facilitate quick and easy identification; and
distribution maps that cover both the Kruger National
Park and the African continent. Further maps show the main roads through the Park, and
outline the predominant vegetation zones. This book is part of a series of field guides to the Kruger National
Park, the other titles being Trees, Insects and Birds of the
Kruger National Park. Together they form a comprehensive picture of wildlife in the Park."
Verleger: "South Africa has a rich
flora of around 19000 different wildflower species. Several of these, especially proteas, gerberas,
agapanthus and clivias, are now internationally known, while the brightly coloured flowers of freesias,
nerinas, sparaxis and chincherinchees have become favourites in gardens throughout the world. Each year
thousands of visitors are drawn to the spring wildflower displays that transform the landscapes of
Namaqualand and the Western Cape. For those who wish to know more about South Africa's wildflowers this very
richness poses its own problems. Most flower guides cover little more than small stretches of the country
and the others include too few species to be of much use. Wildflowers of South Africa aims to
overcome these deficiencies. Carefully conceived to cover those wildflowers that are most likely to attract
attention, this countrywide guide includes nearly 900 of the most common and conspicuous wildflowers that
occur in South Africa and the neighbouring countries of Lesotho, Swaziland and Namibia. Details: An
easy-to-use format divides the country into three main wildflower regions, Grassland and Savannah, Fynbos
and Namaqualand, grouping the species into each region. An ingenious quick guide helps the reader to narrow
down the options at a glance. Authored and illustrated by professionals with wide experience in producing
guidebooks, Wildflowers of South Africa is the key to unlocking South Africa's wildflower heritage.
Each of the almost 900 species is illustrated and described, with information on its common and scientific
names, habitat, distribution map, flowering times and local uses. Similar species are placed together to aid
comparison and the concise text highlights their differences."
