About this item

New York’s wildlife has always played an important role in the history of the human beings inhabiting the state. Native Americans depended on birds, mammals, and fish for sustenance. Later, early Europeans immigrants hunted, trapped, and fished in the region both for food and for profit. Although the state’s wildlife is still an important resource for hunters, trappers, and fishermen, wildlife is also increasingly important for its intrinsic, aesthetic value. For many New Yorkers today, experiencing nature and enjoying wildlife in its natural habitat has become an important recreational activity that serves to enhance their lives. But despite an inherent interest and fascination with wildlife, many New Yorkers are largely unaware of the diversity of species inhabiting their state. This volume is intended to provide an introduction to the state’s fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals.

In The New York Wildlife Encyclopedia, nationally known naturalist Scott Shupe has collected information on all the wildlife that reside in the Empire State. The first in a series of state wildlife encyclopedias, this book will be a handy, usable, layman’s guide to New York’s wildlife.

Included are over 800 color photographs, depicting the different species of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and fish, while also offering over 600 range maps to show their territory. Along with basic information for the biology of each animal, Shupe includes the size, habitat, and abundance of each species located in the state.

Whether you’re a lover of the outdoors, photography, or are looking to learn more about your state, this comprehensive guide will teach you about the wonderful wildlife that covers the water, earth, and skies of New York.
