In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Scientific, Spanish and Portuguese names The names used for the birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, butterflies and dragonflies featured in this book are the generally accepted English names . However, people from many different countries visit Madeira and the Canary Islands, and these names may not therefore be familiar to all . Some visitors will know the species by their universally recognized scientific names and, to help these readers, each species covered in the book is listed in alphabetical order by scientific name in the table below, followed by its English name, as well as the Spanish and Portuguese name(s) where appropriate, cross-referenced to the page on which the main account for that species appears .
