It features 368 full-colour photographs of more than 180 species, including 65 species of birds, 20 species of sea mammals, nearly 60 species of insects, and more than 40 species of flowering and non-flowering plants. Detailed species accounts describe key identification features, with information on status, behaviour, threats, and distribution. This one-of-a-kind photographic guide also includes introductory chapters on South Georgia's geography, climate, ecology, and conservation. 200 pages.
