Alaska (Travellers' Wildlife Guide)
Dennis Paulson and Les Beletsky

5 1/2" x 8 1/2" • 456 pages • full-color illustrations
ISBN 9781566566520 (UK ISBN 9781905214457) • paperback • $27.95

Alaska has both vast wilderness tracts and a modern transportation system, making eco-travelling in the state easy as well as exciting. From the broad expanses of tundra in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the rich seabird colonies of the Bering Sea to the glacier-bedecked snowy mountains and magnificent forests of the Southeast, wildlife viewing opportunities abound. In this book is all the information you will need to find, identify, and learn about Alaska's magnificent animal life.

● Identifying and location information on the most frequently seen animals.

● Full-color illustrations of more than 320 of Alaska's most common marine invertebrates, insects, amphibians, fishes, birds, and mammals.

● Up-to-date information on the ecology, behavior, and conservation of the animals.

● Information on Alaska's habitats and on the most common plants you will encounter.

● Brief descriptions of Alaska's most frequently visited parks and reserves.

Easy to carry, entertainingly written, beautifully illustrated—you will want to have this book as constant companion on your journey.

Dennis Paulson, former director of the Slater Museum of Natural History at the University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, Washington, has been studying wildlife for over 45 years, as a university professor and researcher, nature tour leader, and photographer. He has written or co-authored seven books and 70 papers on a variety of biological subjects, mostly concerning birds and dragonflies.

Les Beletsky is a professional wildlife biologist and former university zoology teacher. Prior to taking up writing wildlife guides, he conducted many years of field research into the ecology and behavior of birds. He is the author of numerous books, including Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Peru in this series.
