Alaska has both vast wilderness tracts and a modern transportation system, making ecotravelling in the state easy as well as exciting. From the broad expanses of tundra in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the rich seabird colonies of the Bering Sea to the glacier-bedecked snowy mountains and magnificent rainforests of the Southeast, wildlife viewing opportunities abound. And if the showy eagles, bears, whales, salmon, and swans aren't enough, there are also fascinating little animals - spreadwings, auklets, dogwinkles, newts, and pikas - everywhere to charm the visitor. In this book is all the information you need to find, identify and learn about Alaska's magnificent animal life. The authors, professional biologists, selected for color illustrations more than 320 of Alaska's most common marine invertebrates, insects, amphibians, fishes, birds, and mammals the species you are most likely to see. In one easy-to-carry, entertainingly written, beautifully illustrated book, you will have as a constant companion on your journey : Identifying and location information on the most frequently seen animals ; Up-to-date information on the ecology, behavior and conservation of the animals ; Information on Alaska's habitats and on the most common plants you will encounter ; Brief descriptions of Alaska's most frequently visited parks and reserves.
