David Brown has shared with us his  The Companion Guide to Trackards for North American Mammals has just been released for sale by the publisher. The 245-page guide interprets illustrations on the Trackards while providing additional illustrations and detailed information on track and scat morphology, trails, behavior and habitat. Each species-chapter also provides comparisons with the similar sign of other species and shows how to tell them apart. The two publications were designed as a single integrated system for successful identification of wildlife evidence found in the field.

For a limited time the Companion Guide is being offered by the publisher, McDonald & Woodward, at a very attractive introductory discount. If ordered directly from the publisher’s website, it can be purchased at 30% off the cover price. If the Trackards are ordered at the same time, the discount can be extended to both.
