With more than 400 spectacular illustrations and a wealth of detailed information drawn from firsthand observation, new research, and synthesis of the scientific literature, this book describes all of Costa Rica's readily identifiable terrestrial and freshwater mammals." "The mammal descriptions include key identification features, range maps, vocalizations, local folklore mythology, and comprehensive information about natural history and conservation. The color illustrations show not only the mammals themselves but also their tracks, foods, and skulls. The text provides an entry point into a general study of tropical ecology and conservation for both first-time and experienced visitors to Costa Rica and the American tropics as well as for naturalists, students and researchers."--Jacket." ;
