'easily understood by the non-zoologist' IBIS 'The volume is well illustrated with photographs in colour and black-and -white, with line drawiongs and diagrams and maps, and it is very well printed. The Encyclopedia is more than a celebration: it is a challenge to the next generations to continue the work and to ensure that the wonderful fauna and flora of India will survive for others to study and enjoy.' TLS 'magnificent undertaking ... a book which the Society can be justly proud of ... a wonderful thing to browse through and is highly recommended ... All will find it a very readable and attractive reference source for all manner of aspects of natural history.':the Phoenix An immense amount of information on India's teeming plant and animal life has accumulated since the foundation of the Bombay Natural History Society in 1883, and much is recorded in the thousands of pages of its Journal. This one-volume Encyclopedia of Indian Natural History is written by experts and non-experts in an unambiguous, easy style. No other comparable work on the Indian sub-continent has so far been published. The Encyclopedia covers the natural history of India, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. It illustrates the complexity of the organisms living in this region, with all their adaptations, mutual interdependence and evolutionary history. It presents: BL 550 articles by 90 contributors encompassing 21 subject categories, including mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians, insects, flowers and plants BL entries arranged in single alphabetical sequence, providing details of habitat, mating and feeding behaviour, appearance and physiological functions; geographic and evolutionary concepts BL all articles edited by well-known authorities in their field; for example, Salim Ali has edited the entries on birds, K.C. Sahni those on botany, and T.J. Roberts those on mammals BL 800 black-and-white illustrations interspersed with the text, 40 pages of photographs, 32 of which are in full colour This Encyclopedia will appeal to anyone curious about the richness and variety of life on the sub-continent, and will create a better understanding of our own responsibility to preserve it for the future. Printed Pages: 640.
