Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0970567812, Paperback)

This book describes all of Costa Rica's readily identifiable terrestrial and freshwater mammals, drawing on detailed information from hundreds of scientific publications. Stunning illustrations show not only the mammals themselves, but also their tracks, scats, dens, and anatomical details. It also includes illustrations of numerous other animals and plants with which the mammals have formed close ecological links. The descriptions include key identification features, range maps, vocalizations, derivations of common and scientific names, evolutionary history, local folklore and mythology, and extensive information about natural history and conservation. It also describes some of the fascinating challenges faced by researchers and points out numerous questions that remain unanswered.
