There are 10,500 species of bird worldwide and wherever they occur people marvel at their glorious colours and their beautiful songs. We also trap and consume birds of every kind. Yet birds have not just been good to eat. Their feathers, which keep us warm or adorn our costumes, give birds unique mastery over the heavens. Throughout history their flight has inspired the human imagination so that birds are embedded in our religions, folklore, music and arts. Vast in both scope and scale, Birds and People explores and celebrates this relationship and draws upon Mark Cocker’s 40 years of observing and thinking about birds. Part natural history and part cultural study, it describes and maps the entire spectrum of our engagements with birds, drawing in themes of history, literature, art, cuisine, language, lore, politics and the environment. In the end, this is a book as much about us as it is about birds. Birds and People has been stunningly illustrated by one of Europe’s best wildlife photographers, David Tipling, who has travelled in 39 countries on seven continents to produce a breathtaking and unique collection of photographs. The book is as important for its visual riches as it is for its groundbreaking content. Birds and People is also exceptional in that the author has solicited contributions from people worldwide. Personal anecdotes and stories have come from more than 650 individuals in 81 different countries. They range from university academics to Mongolian eagle hunters, and from Amerindian shamans to some of the most celebrated writers of our age. The sheer multitude of voices in this global chorus means that Birds and People is both a source book on why we cherish birds and a powerful testament to their importance for all humanity.

Field Guide to Trees of Southern Africa describes and illustrates more than 1 000 of these, focusing on trees that are the most common and most likely to be encountered. Species are logically arranged in 43 groups based on easy-to-observe leaf and stem features, and each account is illustrated by full-colour photographs of the plant’s diagnostic parts. The text also touches on the practical uses of the plants.

This guide offers the best of both worlds in its presentation of birds in both photographic and illustrative form. Each raptor species is afforded one double-page spread, allowing for extensive textual and illustrative coverage. The text focuses on bird identification, first isolating the key points necessary for identifying a species, and then discussing salient features of the adult, sub-adult and juvenile. The bird is described at perch and in flight, and any distinctive behaviour is highlighted. Current distribution, habitat and status are discussed, and finally similar species. The illustrative content, by means of carefully selected photographs from top-ranking wildlife photographers and illustrations by renowned bird artist Peter Hayman, depicts all kinds of plumage relevant to identification (male, female and immature) as well as in-flight shots to help distinguish the often confusing and similar wing patterns of this group of birds.

Greater southern Africa has a wealth of mammal species, almost 400 - all of which are covered in this fully revised, comprehensive field guide. While the term 'African mammals' might conjure up the more celebrated species, such as elephant, lion, leopard or rhino, it is in fact the smaller animals - such as shrews, genets and bats - that comprise the bulk of the region's mammal species. Often overlooked but included here, are also the marine mammals - seals, whales and dolphins - that are found in our oceans. This new edition of Field Guide to Mammals of Southern Africa has been expanded to include species found in Angola, Zambia and Malawi. It has also been extensively revised to include the most recent research in terms of new findings and new taxonomy. Up-to-date information, revised distribution maps and new images (where available) have been combined in a modern, full-colour layout. Colour coding is used to group families, and spoor and size icons are included for quick reference with each mammal entry. Skull photographs have been grouped at the back of the book for easy comparison. In addition to detailed descriptions of each species, the text offers insight into key identification characters, typical behaviour, preferred habitat, food choice, reproduction and longevity.
