Those who follow me, know that I have a weakness for the magnificent landscape of Venezuelan Guayana.This week a new book appeared, describing the cave systems that are present in some of these sandstone table-top mountains (geologically very unusual) and the biodiversity of the Chimant?? massif. All framed in nearly 300 pages, with 500 beautiful and often stunning pictures. It is called ‘Entra??as del Mundo Perdido’ and was written by Charles Brewer-Carias and Marek Audy. At the moment the book is only available as Spanish text; an English translation might follow.
And yes, snails are also represented in the book, referring to the material that was described from the 2009 expedition to Chur??-tepui.
Besides being a beauty to the eye, this book also gives a sound and splendid overview of some of the secrets of the Lost World that were uncovered only recently.Reference:
