Looking through this publisher‘s catalogue, we see they give attention to a wide variety of charismatic flora and fauna.  For example, this book (click the image above to go to the source):

Birds of the World: 365 Days gives this perennially popular subject the 365 treatment: ornithologist and conservationist Philippe J. Dubois presents a “day in the life” of a year’s worth of species from five continents. The stunning images of birds in action, taken by some of the best avian photographers in the world, illustrate the text beautifully.

The birds represented here are a truly global group, including passerines, waterfowl, raptors, and everything in between. In addition to scientific information, Dubois gives insight into the bird’s cultural significance, whether it is regarded by its human neighbors as a pest or a blessing.
