Wildlife of North America: A Naturalist's Lifelist

by Whit Bronaugh
 

Unlike all other “lifelist” books, which cover only one geographical area or one type of fauna, Wildlife of North America is the first volume to present a checklist of all 4,000 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, freshwater fish, butterflies, dragonflies, and damselflies found in the United States and Canada. Each species listing

Overview

Unlike all other “lifelist” books, which cover only one geographical area or one type of fauna, Wildlife of North America is the first volume to present a checklist of all 4,000 species of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, freshwater fish, butterflies, dragonflies, and damselflies found in the United States and Canada. Each species listing includes the common and scientific name, conservation status, a checkbox for sightings, and ample space to record the place, date, and details of the sighting. The listings are based on the most-recent scientific findings and include hundreds of changes not found in current field guides, as well as 150 species recently described as new or elevated from a subspecies level.
            A unique feature of this wildlife journal is the wealth of information Whit Bronaugh provides on biodiversity, zoogeography, extinct species, and current taxonomy to broaden the reader’s general knowledge of North American fauna. It will be especially attractive to the many birders, butterfly enthusiasts, and other wildlife watchers who would welcome a single volume for recording not only sightings of birds but also experiences of other creatures populating their environment, each of which leads to a broader and deeper appreciation for the spectrum of life around us.
            For nature lovers of all ages and all levels of expertise, this volume offers a complete checklist and diary to record a lifetime of observations from elaborate excursions into the wild or sudden encounters in their own backyard.
