are sexually dimorphic, have both breeding and non-breeding plumage, or in which the juvenile plumage
differs markedly from that of the adult, more than one photograph has been included. Thumbnail silhouettes
aid the reader in quickly locating the correct group of birds, and for each species account a map shows the

Rückentext: "Since its original
publication in 1993, The Safari Companion has been the best field guide to observing and
understanding the behavior of African mammals. An indispensable tool for naturalists traveling to Africa,
this new edition has been revised to acknowledge the enthusiasm of those watching these magnificent animals
at zoos and wildlife parks, and on film. The Safari Companion enables readers to recognize and
interpret visible behavioral activities, such as courtship rituals, territorial marking, aggression, and
care of young. Each account of over 80 species includes a behavioral table in which the unique actions of
the hoofed mammals, carnivores, and primates are described for easy reference. In addition, useful maps show
the major national boundaries, vegetation zones, and game parks relevant to the guide. The book includes an
extensive glossary, as well as tips on wildlife photography, a list of organizations working to protect
African wildlife, and advice on where and when to see the animals."

comprehensive guide profiles each of the more than 100 species of diurnal raptor and 40-plus species of owl
