A world unto itself, California encompasses an environment as rich and diverse as any on earth. Deserts, mountain ranges, wetlands, woodlands and 1,100 miles of coastline provide habitats for over 580 bird species, 200 mammals, 130 reptiles and amphibians, 60 freshwater fishes and 5,000 native plant species, many found only in California. This beautifully illustrated field guide highlights over 370 common and unique plants and animals and 85 of the state's outstanding natural attractions. It is an indispensable single reference for amateur naturalists, students and tourists alike.
Zoologist Jim Kavanagh has made a career out of introducing novices to plants, animals, the sciences and world cultures. In addition to creating over 500 simplified nature guides, he has also authored guides to languages, cities and outdoor skills. An avid traveler and backpacker, Kavanagh's path has taken him around the world to many remote destinations including the upper Amazon, Africa, Australia, and the Arctic Circle (and this is just the As). He is also the author of a series of state-specific guides to common species and natural attractions and a children's book on evolution.www.waterfordpress.com
