Handbook of the Mammals of South Asia: With Special Emphasis on India, Bhutan and Bangladesh

N C Bahuguna (Author) Jayanta K Mallick (Author)

Handbook of the Mammals of South Asia is a wonderful treasure trove of little known facts about mammals and interesting nuggets of information about their habits and habitat that have been embellished with riveting tales from the jungles. It is a must read not only for Foresters, but for all animal lovers who feel beckoned by the magical call of the wild.

The book contains details about more than 300 species of animals that have been painstakingly researched over eight years of study. The book is the first ever comprehensive guide to the mammals of South Asia with specific emphasis on India, Bangladesh and Bhutan. It provides a complete status of the animals with their past and present distribution and habitat.

The information in this Handbook is compiled not just from field study and reference texts, but from information available in official government papers, registers of guest houses across the regions under the forest department, manuals, gazetteers, and the annual reports of the forest department.

Apart from being a seminal reference text, the book is a lively read, as the authors have added anecdotes, stories and their personal experiences to provide a first hand account for the reader. At several places in the book, there is information that has hitherto not been analyzed or recorded ever before.
