    An excellent general guide to animals and some plants of the Galapagos

    If you are going to take one book with you on your trip to the Galapagos, take this one. Several of us on the trip I recently went on had it along, and I didn't see any other compact general guide I thought was as good. Coverage of birds, reptiles, and mammals is quite complete. There are also sections on invertebrates, including insects and some other arthropods, and sea urchis and sea stars. There are write-ups about each species, and usually pretty good photographs. This will not be good for snorkeling, as there are no fish or other under sea denizens covered. Serious birders may also want to bring a book that focuses completely on birds.<BR/><BR/>Of course it is not completely "comprehensive", but I think most people traveling there would find it really helpful. It also covers some geology, ocean currents and climate, conservation issues, and some human history.<BR/><BR/>Because it is small (4 1/2 x 7 1/2 x < 1 inch) it is easy to carry as you are walking or spotting birds from a boat

    Essential Field Guide

    This book was invaluable during our trip to the Galapagos, as we were able to identify the wide variety of wildlife we saw on our daily excursions. Its value increased even more upon our return, as we sought to identify the subjects of our photographs!
