NEW BOOK: Tracks & Tracking in Southern Africa

This fully revised and updated edition of the earlier Photographic Guide to Tracks & Tracking in Southern Africa is now published in Pocket Guide format. Featuring new photographs throughout, this handy guide provides simple tools to help interpret the tracks and signs of some 105 southern African mammals, reptiles, frogs and birds.

Photographs and diagnostic spoor illustrations are given for each animal, along with information on behaviour, habits and habitat – and up-to-date distribution maps show where the animals occur.

Special features on insects and scat supplement the text, and a detailed introduction offers basic guidelines for learning how to become a tracker.

Compact and easy to use, this book will be an invaluable tool in the wild.
