This is the first English-language field guide to the wildlife of Chile and its territories-Chilean Antarctica, Easter Island, San Felix y San Ambrosio, and the Juan Fernandez Archipelago. The colour plates depict species in their natural environments with unmatched vividness and realism. The combination of detailed illustrations and engaging, succint and authoritative text makes field identification quick, easy and accurate. Maps, charts and diagrams provide information about landforms, submarine topography, marine environment, climate, vegetation zones and the best places to view wildlife. This is an essential guide to Chile's remarkable biodiversity. 'In a single portable volume, Chester presents nearly every natural gem that Chile has to offer-richly illustrated, tersely described, and, in many cases, presented for the very first time in any field guide.' -Edward S. Brinkley, editor in chief of the journal North American Birds
