From the cover: “This book is a timely warning. Its authors – have compiled what is, in effect, an encyclopaedia of vertebrate animals that are threatened by man’s depredations. The authors describe the world distribution, natural habitat and the chances of survival of 144 different species — twelve of which have become extinct in the course of the last four or five centuries. The preface is by Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, the President of the Italian branch of the World Wildlife Fund, and an extensive appendix by Fulco Pratesi, a well-known conservationist, discusses the causes of the disappearance of animal species and the declining numbers of many others.
