A guide to the carnivores of central America: natural history, ecology and conservation.Artist/Author: de la Rosa, Carlos L. and Claudia C. Nocke.
One of the first field guides dedicated to the carnivores of Central America. It describes the four families and the individual species that occur in the region. Hardcover out of print.
This book is one of the first field guides dedicated to the carnivores of Central America. It describes the four indigenous families-wild cats, raccoons and their relatives, skunks and their relatives, and wild canids-and their individual species that live in the region. The authors introduce each species by recounting a first-person encounter with it, followed by concise explanations of its taxonomy, scientific name, English and Spanish common names, habitat, natural history, and conservation status. Range maps show the animal’s past and current distribution, while Claudia Nocke’s black-and-white drawings portray it visually.
