Abstract:

The Brazilian Amazon region holds a very special place in the minds of the world's nature lovers as a vast wilderness of tropical forest splendor; and southern Brazil's Pantanal area, an immense wetland, has a well-deserved reputation for its tremendous wildlife-viewing opportunities. Ecotravellers to these regions 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. In this book is all the information you need to find, identify, and learn about Brazil's magnificent animal and plant life.--Publisher's description.
