Vorwort: "The breathtaking scenery of
Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro
is not the only reason for visiting Arusha National
Park. Rather, the extraordinary quality of the park lies in the variety of its landscapes and habitats,
ranging from open savannah to montane forests, lakes, marshes and rocky peaks, hosting a highly diverse
wildlife community. Therefore visitors, during their walks through the park, besides enjoying the view of an
elephant roaming in the forest, have the possibility to discover the enchanting world of the minor species:
birds, butterflies, frogs, snakes. The Arusha National
Park's herpetofauna seems to be particularly interesting and diverse... This booklet is the result of
the joint effort of two naturalists: Charles Msuya from the University of Dar es Salaam
and Edoardo Razzetti from the University of Pavia... The
authors' competence, commitment and enthusiasm, together with their ability to take beautiful photographs,
resulted in this fine work, that is expected to gently guide visitors into the fascinating world of
amphibians and reptiles, two groups of animals, which have been on earth so much longer than man."

Verleger: "Spiders are one of the
groups most feared by humans because of the venom they produce. They comprise one of the largest groups of
land animals and occur commonly in gardens frequently entering houses. Although they are feared and much
maligned, they are important predators in our ecosystems. About 3000 spider species are presently known from
Southern Africa. This is the first CD-ROM on all the 67 spider families of Southern Africa. Scattered
information from scientific papers and handbooks are grouped together to provide an informative full colour
guide, including 841 colour images, on the spiders of Southern Africa. [Features:] General information on
spider morphology; life styles; biology; their role in nature, where to find them as well as medically
important species. For each family and subfamily the following is provided: common names; genera and number
of species; descriptive characters; webs and retreats; habitats; general behaviour; distribution patterns;
prey and medical importance. A-Z search. Glossary. Photo gallery."
