Northwest Yunnan in China has been identified as a biodiversity hotspot of global importance, but its plant and animal life remain poorly known among naturalists. This photographic field guide presents a synthesis of information drawn from first hand observations and surveys on the flora and fauna of the Golden Monkey National Park and Baimaxueshan Nature Reserve. This region harbours a mixture of plants from the subtropical and temperate realm including a wide variety of rhododendrons; it also boasts the largest population of the charismatic and endangered Yunnan snub-nosed monkey and is home to a fascinating array of bird species including a number of spectacular pheasants. This guide covers plants, fungi, birds, reptiles, amphibians and mammals, with more than 400 species (some representing new records for the region) photo-documented in full colour, with accompanying field notes.
Dr. Cyril C. Grueter is Associate Professor of Biological Anthropology and Primatology at the University of Western Australia.
