Abstract

Description: Palm-fringed silvery sands, turquoise seas, misty mountain peaks and coral reefs coupled with tropical sun and starry skies make the Seychelles an idyllic escape for discerning travellers. With plants and animals historically linked to Africa, Madagascar and Asia, and marine life native to the tropical Indo-Pacific region, the Seychelles is a haven for those interested in natural history and this is the only travel guide to the Seychelles with a comprehensive account of the flora and fauna. The authors provide fascinating coverage of the islands' biodiversity, from mangroves, turtles and birds to nature reserves. Updated throughout, they reveal the islands many secrets from coco de mer palm forests and bird sanctuaries to local markets and Creole cuisine.
