"Every science classroom in the Bahamas, no matter what grade level, should have at least one copy of The Natural History of the Bahamas."
Paul A. De Luca, University of the Bahamas:
"The Natural History of the Bahamas includes all major aspects of natural history, biological and geological, making it an excellent resource. I wish a reference guide like this was available to me when I started working in the Bahamas fifteen years ago!"
Kathleen Sullivan Sealey, University of Miami:
"The authors have written an excellent book, one that is needed by island residents and educators, visitors, tourism businesses, researchers, and visiting scientists alike."
Sandra D. Buckner, Past President of the Bahamas National Trust:
"The Natural History of the Bahamas fills a void in the literature on the avian and terrestrial species found there and is an overall excellent guide."
