“Animal Tracks and Signs” book

The book Animal Tracks and Signs by Saeedeh Bani-Asadi and Shahab Cheraghi, and supervised by Dr. Afshin Alizadeh is now available in book stores.

Many of those who take nature trips are curious to know about their surroundings. These travelers are eagerly looking for signs of living creatures in nature. Some animals are nocturnal or too spooky and as such it is difficult to spot them. Yet, if we can recognize their tracks and signs, we can be assured of their existence in the area. Wildlife specialists too need to have a field guide to better recognize and differentiate marks left by various species.

In response to this need, particularly among wildlife specialists and nature-lovers, Animal tracks and signs was published. The photos and illustrations in this book help nature goers during their outdoor activities to recognize signs left by various animals. Animals’ signs include remains of feeding, feces, urine, regurgitated material, and tracks, categorized in this book in different chapters.

The initial idea of this book goes back to when the main author translated a book by the same name published by Oxford Publications and presented it as a discussion topic during his undergraduate studies. Part of the present book is a translation of the original book, but due to discrepancies between the information presented in that reference book and species found in Iran, the authors decided to revise parts of the original English edition and add sections after consulting with field specialists.

This book is published by Iranshenasi Publications. PWHF and some of its donors have provided financial assistance to the publication of this book.
