Reviews of the Arizona Wildlife Notebook by Garry Rogers
“Arizona Wildlife Notebook is a very well-documented snapshot of the status of all known wildlife species – from bugs to bats – in the State of Arizona. Much of it should be relevant to neighboring states, as well, with a bit of fine-tuning to accommodate additions and deletions to the list. As a retired Wildlife Biologist myself, I have to say Rogers’ book is perhaps the simplest to understand, yet most comprehensive in terms of factual information, that I have ever had occasion to peruse. This book should become the default checklist for Arizona’s various state, federal and local conservation agencies, and the basis for developing accurate local inventories by private enthusiasts as well as public agencies. Additionally, it provides a superb starting point for neighboring states who may wish to emulate Garry Rogers’ excellent handiwork. I wish I’d had access to something as comprehensive, yet simple, many years ago” (Lee Ashford, Goodreads, Reader’s Favorite).
