Description

The attractive title "Ecotravellers Wildlife Guide" had me sold. Unfortunately this book is not for ecotravellers, but for the novice wildlife observer.

The series provides an encyclopedic introduction to Central America's flora and fauna, as well as a friendly primer on the principles of ecotourism. The attractive title "Ecotravellers Wildlife Guide" had me sold. This book is very elementary and is very limited in the variation of species of birds and reptiles listed.

I love my Traveler's Wildlife Guide by Les Beletsky. The Chapters on Ecotourism, Geography, Habitats, Parks, Ecology, Natural History and Conservation are extremely informational and easy to read. In addition the guide provides a wonderful summary of the amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals found in Costa Rica, along with beautiful color identification plates of those species most commonly found, along with summaries of their habitat and the parks where they can be located.

First off, I am a big fan of Les Beletsky's guides; they are the perfect choice if you can only carry one guide with you since they are so general.

Of course, not every plant and animal is in this guide, but what it does have are the creatures you are MOST LIKELY to see. There is a good amount of mammals, birds, reptiles (snakes especially - and rightfully so when there are so many lethal species!), amphibians, fish, inverts, and plants and most of the animals I saw in various places throughout Queensland were in this book. Many people I was out nature-ing with commented on how unusual and useful this guide was.

What this book IS NOT, however, is specialized, so I would not recommend this book to a serious birder looking only for birds and determined to ID every species in the area, and the same is true for other specialists. This book is awesome for someone who does not know what they will see and/or is interested in looking for and identifying a range of animals and/or has so many heavy field guide and just can't afford to take them all.

One minor annoyance with this book (and the series) is that the range of a plant or animal isn't displayed as shaded regions on a map (which I prefer), but instead as abbreviated region names.
