Overview

The rainforests of tropical Asia extend from the Western Ghats of India to where the edges of Asia blur into Australia along the myriad of islands of the Indonesian archipelago. It is here that the largest diversity of primates anywhere in the world can be found. While the orang-utan is one of the icons of Asian wildlife, other primates inhabit this area of the world in great numbers, including macaques, siamangs, and langurs.

These portraits, by the world's top wildlife photographers, present an intriguing and beguiling look into a seldom-seen world beneath the rainforest's canopy.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This photographic essay is a tribute to the wildlife and natural habitats of Asia. The earth's largest continent offers a wide range of climates and geographic areas, from rainforests and tropical islands to barren deserts and the frozen Arctic. Each area has its own indigenous plants and animal and insect species, which are beautifully recorded here by two leading natural history and wildlife photographers, Art Wolfe and Konrad Wothe. The photographs are accompanied by brief but informative captions, and each chapter begins with a captivating essay about the area. What results is chiefly a visual tour, but the careful reader will get a good feel for the vast geography and geology of Asia. Throughout the text is a concern for the environment and the vanishing and endangered wildlife habitats. Asian wildlife is rarely photographed to the extent found here, and this book introduces some rare and unusual species. Release of this volume will be accompanied by a major publicity campaign and a ten-part Wild Asia series on the Discovery Channel. Thus, the book will attract considerable attention and is recommended for purchase where interest warrants.--Deborah Emerson, Monroe Community Coll., Rochester, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
