Format: Paperback
The only comprehensive guide to the mammals of the Greater Sundas, this book covers all species known to occur on the entire island of Borneo (Kalimantan, Sabah, Sarawak & Brunei) with excellent drawings, information on ecology, distribution and status.
Also described are major nature reserves of Borneo, especially of the Malaysian third of the island.
It is also the only mammal guide one can use for Sumatra, Java and Bali, and an Indonesian language edition, available from WCS in Bogor, actually includes an appendix of Sumatran & Javan species not occuring in Borneo, and describes the differences between those and the similar Bornean species.

This book is the most widely use in Borneo. Having work in the field of wildlife management and conservation in Sabah for more that 20 years i must say that Dr.John Payne is among the most well known scientist in Borneo. His book is user friendly. I wish to congratulate Sabah Society for noteworthy contribution to the advencement of knowledge in the field of mammalogy particullarly in Sabah and Malaysia in general.
