Illustrated card covers in Fine condition. First edition, pp xi, 358, colour illustrations and maps throughout, appendices, glossary, index. A definitive field guide to the Antelope of Africa, this book conveys their conservation status, threats and risks for survival, distribution ranges, habitat requirements, habits, and how some of the species were introduced to the scientific world. With text complemented by distribution maps, full-color photographs, and the latest taxonomic classifications, this book also features specific reference to antelope sub-species as the conservation prospects for many species differ from region to region. The Antelope of Africa also shares the story of Africa's antelope and, as the antelope family is becoming increasingly threatened as population numbers are on the decline almost everywhere, it aims to raise appreciation for the diversity of antelope species and their plight in a changing Africa.
