Revue de presse

'A great guide.' --Global

'Extremely useful, with a good section detailing all of the main visitor sites.' --The Daily Telegraph

'Bradt Travel Guides simply have the best wildlife coverage of any of the popular guide books.' --BBC Wildlife

Présentation de l'éditeur

Bradt's fully illustrated wildlife guides focus on regions of the world particularly celebrated for their amazing and often unique species. With spectacular photography or exclusive watercolour drawings throughout, each visitors' guide provides an introduction to the region's principal flora and fauna alongside suggested wildlife itineraries, practical information on when to go and what to take, and photography tips. Written in a deliberately engaging way, they offer something different from dry field guides, and will appeal to the interested layman as much as the wildlife devotee. Ideal as a lightweight companion to any wildlife trip they also make a handsome souvenir.
The Galapagos islands are famed for their unique and diverse wildlife, as illustrated here with full colour photographs on every page. In spite of their isolated location, their allure is such that they are a mecca for wildlife enthusiasts on what has often been called the 'trip of a lifetime'. "Galapagos Wildlife" is written by experienced tour guides, who share essential tips on how to discover the best the islands can offer and fascinating background on key species.
Whether planning a voyage of discovery in the footsteps of Darwin or simply as a great souvenir of a trip, this guide will be invaluable for visitors to this magical kingdom.
* Over 120 colour photographs of species * Habitats, conservation and ecology of the islands * Visitor sites detailed individually, with full-colour trail plans * Species covered by category, including reptiles, marine animals and birdlife

n°1: plantes (8 pages)
n°2: invertébrés (4p)
n°3: reptiles (16p)
n°4: oiseaux (34p)
n°5: mammifères (10p)
n°6: littoral (4p)
n°7: monde sous marin (10p)

HASH(0x924ba324) étoiles sur 5 Travel size Galapagos 17 janvier 2000
Par - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This relatively small book on the wildlife of the Galapagos Islands is packed with information and pictures. The author has gone to a great deal of trouble to condense a vast amount of data into a handbook for the traveller, without sacrificing essential information, clarity or accuracy. Not only does it cover the wildlife that the visitor is most likely to encounter, it also gives a succinct history of the islands. Working in the Galapagos Travel Industry, and having considered many similar books for pre-trip briefing and ready reference while in the islands, this is the book I would recommend.

HASH(0x924ba378) étoiles sur 5 Good to superficial guide, depending on your interests 4 décembre 2002
Par JDiver - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Having visited the Galápagos and planning my return, I can say this introductory booklet (140 pages) is a reliable for people who want an overall idea of the ecology and want to identify some of the most prominent wildlife they are likely to encounter - it is easy to understand, has good information, decent photos of the main players and illustations of the commonest landing sites. For you, this booklet rates three stars for clarity, comprehension level and lightness in your backpack, but it fails next to Andy Swash and Rob Still's more comprehensive and better illustrated "Birds, Mammals and Reptiles of the Galápagos Island".
For those who want a more in depth knowledge of the Galápagos and their wildlife, or are traveling to some of the more remote sites or the northernmost islands: you will feel short-changed and wish you had purchased more comprehensive guide(s), so you can identify all the critters you will possibly observe and learn much more about their habitats and behaviors, climate and cvlimate zones, etc. For those travelers (birders, nature buffs, divers, etc.), this booklet rates a generous three stars for its relatively topical treatments.
Choose your guidebooks according to your interests and skills. And go there, walk softly and leave nothing. Visiting should have as little impact as possible, and in my opinion when done properly does help protect these wonderful islands of biological diversity from rampant pirate fishing, oil spills and short-sighted political stewardship. Our "tangibilitized" interest is the only one the Ecuadorian government- at least up until now- has responded to.

HASH(0x924ba654) étoiles sur 5 Very helpful and detailed 28 juillet 2013

I used this book on a recent Galapagos trip. I really liked that the book had descriptions of each island so we knew what to expect before disembarking. Also, it has chapters by type of wildlife so it was easy to look up a particular reptile, fish, mammal or plant. The background on the history was also quite informative, and the book was a great supplement to the talks given by the naturalists. The photographs were very helpful as well. While on the trip, others kept borrowing my book!

HASH(0x924ba54c) étoiles sur 5 Excellent text and photos in this brief book 10 juillet 2007
Par Donald Nierlich - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I agree with the previous reviewers: I carried this book to the Galapagos and found it a super companion. It isn't comprehensive -- and a few additional pages of IDs and photos might be desirable -- but it covers all of the essential natural-history topics: geology/volcanoes, history, fish, birds, mammals, turtles & iguanas, geography and so on -- and the photos and text are excellent. Indeed, the text is what sets it apart; there are short, interesting discussions of many of the features that are exceptional to the islands, so without any deep study you come away with some appreciation of what you have seen. Finally, in addition to the good chapters mentioned by other reviewers, there is an excellent chapter for planning your trip, which details what you will see where. It is amazing that so much good stuff was fit into this thin book. Take it with a more comprehensive treatment if you want the name of everything you see (or ask your guide).

This book is really great to have and a handy size to take along with you while on land. The pictures are a help in identifying the birds, fish and mammals. And there is an interesting historical overview of the Islands.
