Reader's Digest North American Wildlife
This volume is an illustrated guide to 2,000 plants and animals. Every species is presented in full color; this reference contains thousands of identification capsules, range maps, and habitat symbols and a special 32 page guide to wildlife communities. Spanning the land from Florida to Alaska, it embraces field, forest, pond, prairie -- all the natural communities that make our North American flora and fauna so splendidly diverse. This book is really two in one -- both a valuable at-home reference and an extraordinary usable guide to the most common and conspicuous wild plants and animals of our continent. It is specially planned for quick and easy identification.
