British Mammals, Matthews,  L. Harrison
46 Matthews, L. Harrison British Mammals
London Readers Union / Collins 1960 Cloth Very Good 
Well illustrated, octavo, pp xii, 410, a tiny suggestion of foxing to the fore-edge and the endpapers, otherwise an exceptionally clean copy internally, green cloth in very good condition. A very pleaseing copy. [The study of our mammals during the present century has been wide and intensive. On the whole it has been conducted by workers who are general naturalists, ecologists, anatomists, physiologists - but not purely mammalogists. Dr. Matthews himself is a general naturalist of wide experience and distinction, but here he has done what British natural history has wanted for half a century - written a synthesis of our knowledge of mammals which treats them as mammals. And what an exciting synthesis it is! The ordinary amateur naturalist is bound to be astonished at the remarkable discoveries about the distribution, life history and habits of our British mammals that Dr. Matthews has collected together in his book. These advances are shown, perhaps, most clearly in the case of the bats. There has been a revolution in our knowledge of the breeding-cycle of these interesting creatures, with its curious problems of delayed fertilisation and delayed implantation; and the discovery of the method by which bats navigate in the dark by means of echo-sounding, here given, at that time, its most lucid exposition in an English publication, is quite remarkable. Undoubtedly, this book stimulated a revival of British mammalogy. The subject, which has had up to now a largely hidden following, has been handicapped by the lack of a periodical devoted to mammals, and by the lack of any recent synthetical book. For instance, the only important systematic treatise on the British mammals of the present century was left unfinished nearly sixty years ago.]

The High Frontier - exploring the tropical rainforest canopy, Moffett, Mark W.
49 Moffett, Mark W. The High Frontier - exploring the tropical rainforest canopy
Cambridge, Massachusetts & London Harvard University Press 1993 0674390393 / 9780674390393 Paperback Very Good 
Well illustrated, large 8vo, small quarto, pp 192, paperback, very slight wear to the covers, otherwise a very good copy. [Loaded with aerial plants and the millions of creatures dependent upon them, tropical tree crowns are the last and greatest ecological frontier. Hundreds of species - earthworms, frogs, lichens, flowers - never descend to earth during their lifetimes. Eight out of ten remain unnamed and unclassified by science. Donning rock-climbing gear to join researchers working 150 feet and more above the ground, Mark Moffett photographed strangler trees in Borneo, giant squirrels in India, and canopy bears in Colombia. He also entered the terrifying world of arboreal spiders and ants, photographing them under extreme magnification. Described as a "world-roving zoologist" by "National Geographic" magazine, Moffett has documented virtually every major active canopy research site. The immediacy of his writing and the intelligence of his photography make the canopy's fantastic architecture and unearthly inhabitants accessible to the general reader. In the tradition of the great 19th-century explorers, he captures the struggles of the individual scientists and the passions that enable them to brave perilous situations in pursuit of their work.]

51 Mohamed, Maryati; Takano, Atsuko; Goossens, Benoit & Indran, Rajah Lower Kinabatangan Scientific Expedition 2002
Kota Kinabalu Universiti Malaysia Sabah 2003 9832369118 / 9789832369110 
Illustrated, large 8vo, pp xii, 164, a very good copy in dustwrapper. With reports on ants, butterflies, fireflies, primates including gibbons, mosses, vascular plants, ethnobotany, ethnozoology, and a report on the ecology and demography of Opisthostoma concinnum {Gastropoda : Diplommatinidae] on limestone outcrops. [There was a time when forests lined this river, providing ample habitat for wildlife, and people lived harmoniously with them. But times have changed today, the forests are in isolated patches, barely enough for the wildlife to survive. Instead, oil palm plantations have flourished and expanded, sometimes very near to the riverbanks. Due to sediment and the use of chemicals, the river is now polluted. Indigenous people complain of lower harvests from the river and dead fishes floating in the river during heavy downpours, when chemicals are washed down into the river system. It is time for action. An expedition to the Lower Kinabatangan was organized during 2nd May to 2nd June 2002. About 70 scientists and their assistants participated from several agencies within Sabah, as well as from Peninsular Malaysia. Colleagues from Japan under the Bornean Biodiversity and Ecosystem Conservation (BBEC) programme also participated. In addition collaborators from the United Kingdom, involved in joint research and training on genetic conservation of Orang-utans at Kinabatangan were also present. This joint collaborative research is funded by the Darwin Initiative, United Kingdom. The well known couple from the non-govemmental organisation HUTAN, Isabelle and Marc Ancrenaz, who are organizing the Kinabatangan Orang-Utan Conservation Project (KOCP), and their staff participated and contributed tremendously by providing logistics and the base camp for the one-month expedition. This expedition was organized jointly between Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA), KOCP, Sabah Wildlife Department and Darwin Initiative. It was also supported by WWF Malaysia (Partners for Wetlands Programme).

55 PAYNE, Junaidi & FRANCIS, Charles M. A Field Guide to the Mammals of Borneo.

Well illustrated with 60 colour plates + line drawings, small 8vo, pp 332, paperback, although this is new, in publisher's shrinkwrap, the lower corner is bumped; otherwise good copy. [This guide book is aimed at naturalists, zoologists, specialists, scholars and public at large with a keen interest in identifying the mammals of Borneo. It describes every species of wild mammal presently known in Borneo and its offshore islands: 221 species of wild land mammals have been recorded, of which 92 species are bats. Also included in the book are descriptions of the more commonly encountered domestic animals which might be confused with wild ones, as well as a few species which have not definitely been recorded in Borneo but which are likely to be found in the area. Each mammal is beautifully illustrated in colour with brief notes on the species on the facing page. Concise and easy to use, A Field Guide to Mammals of Borneo is an indispensable aid to greater awareness of this important segment of the fauna in Borneo.]

The Natural History of the Proboscis Monkey, Sha, John C.M.; Matsuda, Ikki & Bernard, Henry

Kota Kinabalu 2011 9838121304 / 9789838121309 First Edition Paperback As New 
Well illustrated, small slim 8vo, pp 126, paperback, a very good copy. [The machinations of fate have converged our paths upon the tip of the third largest island in the world - the state of Sabah on Malaysian Borneo. A mysterious place seemingly untouched by the age of globalisation and, for the uninitiated, one which can still conjure up wild images of impenetrable rainforests, impassable mountain ranges, undiscovered head-hunting tribes and a diversity of weird and untamed animals beyond one’s most vivid imagination. Travelling along the water highways of the major rivers and estuaries in Sabah, one is bound to be drawn to the unmistakable sights of little orange visages breaking through the monotonous green and brown of the forest fabric, and the boisterous honks and growls awakening the tranquillity of the forest silence. This is what brought us together on this common journey of discovery, an animal that astounded early explorers and which still fascinates many today - one that is "amazingly wonderful", yet "highly ludicrous" and "amazingly grotesqu""- the proboscis monkey. Contents include - Sabah: its forests, diversity and people, Studying the proboscis monkeys, Proboscis monkeys and their habitats, Distribution of proboscis monkeys, Activity and behavior, Social organisation, Feeding ecology, Ranging behaviour, Natural predation, Threats to proboscis monkeys, Conservation of proboscis monkeys, Ecotourism, Bibliography & Glossary.]
