Duikers, small forest antelopes that traditionally have supplied protein to countless African village meals, are a relatively poorly studied taxon. Duikers of Africa, by Vivian J. Wilson, corrects that oversight in a grand fashion and represents the 1st comprehensive study of this important group of antelopes. The volume compiles previous research and adds the author's vast field and market experience to place duikers and their conservation in an ecological, social, and economic context.
