In the forests of Madagascar, about nine-tenths of the plant and animal species are unique to the island. Their natural habitats range from true rainforest to the lunar landscape of the spiny desert, and the natural rock-gardens of the mountain tops. Madagascar is no oceanic island, but a fragment of continent a thousand miles long, wrenched loose from the side of Africa. In this Lost World, plants and animals have become a living museum of evolution. Aepornis, the largest bird which ever lived, became extinct on Madagascar in the last few hundred years. Many more Malagasy species are now

Thank you, Madagascar : the conservation diaries of Alison Jolly by Alison Jolly( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Saving Madagascar is an eyewitness account of First World conservationists' attempts to rescue the extraordinary biodiversity of Madagascar - and the environment of its people. At the book's heart is a conflict between three different views of nature. Is the extraordinary forest treasure-house of Madagascar, with its beauty and evolved fascination for science, a heritage for the entire world? Is it instead a legacy of the forest dwellers' ancestors, bequeathed to serve the needs of their living descendants? Or is it an economic resource to pillage for short-term gain, to be preserved only in the measure of return in environmental services for those with political power? Beautifully written, this book is a diary of the people and animals of Madagascar
