Item description for Nature Notes from Tanzania by Anne Outwater...
Unique geology and climatic fluctation through eons of time have blessed Tanzania with a rich and diverse natural heritage - more than 1,000 species of birds and butterflies, and 344 mammals, with more still being discovered. In this beautifully illustrated book, there is an essay on each month of the year, giving a glimpse into the world of mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects, fish, inverterbrates and plants - the whole ecology developed over millions of years. The great forces are the four seasons, and the rich habitat, with each biome producing different vegetation types supporting different types of animals. Amongst endorsements of the book, the President of Tanzania commends the author's writings which "open our eyes and sharpen our senses to what there is all around us. As a result they strengthen my resolve to preserve it and restore what of it we have damaged".
