Toronto Biodiversity Booklet Series

This post is rather specific to Toronto and surrounding regions in the GTA.  The city has put together guide books to local biodiversity that are available in PDF format or from free from Toronto Public Libraries.  Titles include

  • Birds of Toronto
  • Butterflies of Toronto
  • Spiders of Toronto
  • Fishes of Toronto
  • Mammals of Toronto
  • Reptiles and Amphibians of Toronto

And there are plans to add

  • Trees and Shrubs of Toronto
  • Bees of Toronto
  • Mushrooms of Toronto
  • Birds of Toronto (revised)

These booklets go well beyond a field guide and include information about the animals, habitat, ways to responsibly observe them,  even legends about the animals.
