Wildlife of the Caribbean
Pocket Guide by Herbert A. Raffaele and James W. Wiley
“This guide, with 600 pictures in rich colors describes in clear language 451 species of Terrestrial life as well as Marine life that can be found on the Islands of the Caribbean.
Plants, Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians, Marine Mammals, Mollusks, Fish and more.
Each species has a description easy to comprehend and smartly written for a pocket guide. The authors also included a great deal of pertinent information that would make ID of a species very simple and quite speedy. Along with the descriptions is a number of pages with information about important subjects such as the Islands, Biogeography, Geography, Climate, Habitats, etc.
As per my own experience I’ve been to various Caribbean Islands where a pocket guide like this one would have helped me very much when I needed it!”
