Malaysia is a diverse country with an incredible number of land species and coastal waters that form part of the equally rich Coral Triangle. Written by a team of local experts, this book looks at the most important habitats within the three divisions of the country: Peninsular Malaysia, Sarawak and Sabah. The habitats cover a fascinating range including pristine rainforests, limestone complexes, wetlands, coastal regions, caves and highlands. A unique feature in each chapter is the 'Guided Tour' which takes readers to specific habitats to explore the trees, birds, plants and animals to be found there. Illustrated with Stephen Hogg's vibrant photographs, Wild Malaysia provides an authoritative and entertaining survey of the wide spectrum of wildlife on the land and in the seas of this diverse country.
