Deserts, mountain ranges, wetlands, woodlands and 1,100 miles of coastline provide habitats for over 580 bird species, 200 mammals, 130 reptiles and amphibians, 60 freshwater fishes and 5,000 native plant species, many found only in California. This beautifully illustrated field guide highlights over 370 common and unique plants and animals and 85 of the state's outstanding natural attractions. It is an indispensable single reference for amateur naturalists, students and tourists alike.
