Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Waterford's new series of Pocket Naturalists to North American plants and animals highlight the most common, distinctive, and widely distributed species in each category. Like all Pocket Naturalists, these guides provide simplified pocket reference that allows readers to easily identify species at a glance. Many of the guides in the series also provide a review of the taxonomy of species and the key differences between groups.

Waterford Pocket Naturalist guides provide a simplified synopsis to many fields of study. They serve as a "first step on the learning ladder" for novices and are a natural precursor to more complex guides that provide comprehensive scientific information.

Synopsis:

What distinguishes a bird of prey? They have exceptionally good vision, a sharp, hooked beak, and powerful feet with curved, sharp talons. Birds of Prey is the perfect pocket-sized, folding guide for the raptor lover and nature enthusiast. This beautifully illustrated guide highlights almost all North American species perching and in flight. Created and printed in the USA, this guide was updated in 2012 with a new cover design and a back panel map highlighting raptor flyways and migratory hotspots Laminated for durability, this handy guide is a great source of portable information and ideal for field use by novices and experts alike.

Synopsis:

About the Author

James Kavanagh has authored over 100 guides that introduce novices to common plants, animals and natural phenomena.

"Environmental education begins when people begin to understand and appreciate the plants and animals in their immediate environment and their relationship to them. This education often begins when people learn the names of species. Just like with humans, a relationship between two individuals begins when they first learn each other's name and grows from there. We hope that by creating products that introduce readers to species, we will begin to facilitate long term relationships that allow people to better comprehend their place in the natural world and understand the urgent need to protect and sustain all species."

James Kavanagh, President
