Photographs by Gerald Cubitt Wild Thailand is the fifth volume in a series celebrating the earth's great wilderness areas, illustrated by one of the world's leading natural history photographers. Like its companion volumes on Indonesia, India, Malaysia, and New Zealand, it is richly illustrated with over 400 full-color photographs. Chapters focus on each area of the country in turn, with an emphasis on environmental threats and conservation programs. Thailand is a country of seemingly infinite variety, containing almost every habitat variation found in tropical Asia, from dry tropical pine forests in the mountainous north, through flood plains in the central region, to wet evergreen forests in the steamy south. The coasts boast mangrove swamps and stunning coral reefs. The country also harbors some 27,000 flower species—an estimated 10 percent of the world's total—along with over 900 bird species. It is, in effect, a biogeographic gateway through which the ecological elements of the surronding countries have met and merged, creating a natural potpourri that is not found anywhere else.
