Pictorial Pocket Guide to the Mammals of Sri Lanka. “It is indeed a pocket publication, being a paperback only 19×11.5cm and 148 pages long. The main part of the book is of course the guide to the mammals themselves. It follows conventional field guide practice with three to six species to a page in what seems like a fairly normal systematic order. Each species is described in the normal manner, with an associated range map (Sri Lanka only). Of course, both the English and scientific names are provided as well as Sinhala and Tamil names in the indigenous scripts. That feature in itself would be a great assistance to mammal-watchers in communicating their desires to local guides. Text runs down the left-hand page while illustrations run down the right-hand side. All illustrations appear well proportioned with accurate features and colour.” Review by Michael Johnson. mammalwatching.com
