This work provides access to a wealth of information. Reference librarians, students, zoologists, conservationists, and amateur naturalists can use it to locate such sources as a field guide to the birds of Bali, a checklist of the mammals of Africa, an encyclopedia of fishes, a handbook on insects, an identification key to reptiles of North America, or the name of an Internet news group on western birds. It is the only existing work that contains a compilation of all the major reference sources on the animal kingdom. A comprehensive author-title index and a separate subject index make locating specific entries simple. The subject index includes the common and scientific names of animal groups and geographical locations. Intended for use in public, academic, and specialized libraries, as well as departments in the zoological sciences.

?What makes the current otherwise typical bibliography highly relevant is the appendix on Internet and other electronic resources...Librarians and others prone to use bibliographies will find this one very useful. Recommended for all collections.?-Choice
