Summary After The South African Bushveld-A Field Guide from the Waterberg, this is the second comprehensive field guide to be published in southern Africa that covers a detailed cross-section of the most prominent animals, plants, birds, fish, insects and tracks and signs of a particular region. It includes a detailed natural history section for a greater understanding of the geology, habitats and ecology of the region. This book negates the need to carry more than one guide book when visiting the Okavango. Contents include: Geology, Habitats, Ecology, Mammals (& diseases), Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians.
