Description
"The diversity of Mexico's habitat . . . yields an incredible avifauna. Roland Wauer does justice to this abundance and provides an important handbook on the natural places of the most popular foreign birding destination of North American bird watchers."-- Bird Watcher's Digest Mexico is a biological paradise, possessing the greatest natural diversity in North America. With only one-fourth the land area of the United States, it possesses as many plant species and many more kinds of animals than its northern neighbor. Yet the favored tourist attractions of Mexico are the cities, beaches, and archaeological sites. Since 1966 Roland Wauer has made annual trips to see his own favorite attractions in Mexico: native birds and their remote habitats. From his adventures he has written an indispensable companion for anyone visiting Mexico with an interest in Birding and the country's spectacular natural environment. He introduces us to Mexico's unsung diversity, from its arid lowlands and coastal islands to the forested uplands and humid jungles, once home of the ancient Mayans. Originally published under the title NATURALIST'S MEXICO, this handy guide features a new and updated introduction. Its thirty-nine balck-and-white photographs provide further reason to explore the flora and fauna that thrive off the beaten bath.
