West Southwest : Vertebrate Life in the Southern California Environs Paperback / softback
West Southwest: Vertebrate Life in Southern California celebrates an amazingly diverse fauna with description, evolutionary background, geographic insight, and ecological detail.
Southern California is a vast region of very different habitats - all with an abundance of unique species of plants and animals and all within a day's drive.
Southern California shares an evolutionary history with other areas of the Southwest, but it has its own identity.
The book is not a field identification guide. Instead, the book provides the evolutionary history of species groups, details where the individual species occur and their habitat preferences, and how they avoid the perils of predation and human impact.
