Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands(Travellers' Wildlife Guide)
David L. Pearson and Les Beletsky

5 1/2" x 8 1/2" • 440 pages • full-color throughout
ISBN 9781566565301 • paperback • $29.95

Travellers to Ecuador want to experience tropical forests and other stunning habitats and catch glimpses of exotic wildlife: toucans and parrots, monkeys and anteaters, frogs and toads, crocodiles and snakes. On the Galapagos Islands, curious visitors want to see with their own eyes the exotic, unique, tame wildlife that stimulated Charles Darwin to formulate the theory of evolution. In this book is all the information you need to find, identify, and learn about Ecuador's magnificent animal life. The authors, professional biologists, selected for color illustrations more than 500 of Ecuador's most common insects, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals — the species you are most likely to see. In one easy-to-carry, entertainingly written, beautifully illustrated book, you will have as constant companion on your journey:

● Identifying and location information on the most frequently spotted animals

● Up-to-date information on the ecology, behavior, and conservation of the families of animals to which the pictured species belong

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

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


David L. Pearson is a Research Professor in the Department of Biology at Arizona State University. He has studied habitats from desert grasslands and coral atolls to tropical rain forests and has written more than 75 scientific articles.

Les Beletsky is a professional wildlife biologist and university zoology teacher. He is the author of numerous wildlife guides including Costa Rica in the same series.
