Each is an immense sandstone plateau that is encircled on all sides by gigantic vertical cliffs up to 1,000 metres tall. This work explores the wildlife and history of discovery of these alluring 'lost worlds'. Lost worlds is the first and only comprehensive study of the remarkable natural history of the tepuis of the Guiana Highlands. The strengths of this book include (1) its uniquely detailed content; (2) the 248 spectacular figures including breath taking images, maps, historical illustrations and photo (3) the very first published images of several species of tepui dwelling plants and animals in their natural habitats. Lost Worlds is up-to-date, comprehensive, focused, well illustrated, and visually beautiful. It is technically written yet is accessible to specialist and non-specialist audiencesand will be a valued source of information for all interested in the natural history of the remarkable tablelands of the Guiana!
