The Elephant in Sri Lanka presents a readable synthesis of the present state of knowledge of almost every aspect of the Sri Lankan elephant. The book traces the historical and cultural role of the elephant, identifies its habitat preferences, describes its diet, behaviour, social structure and reproduction biology, methods of capture and domestication; and most importantly, addresses in detail the conservation status of the elephant in Sri Lanka while proposing strategies for improved conservation management. The book is richly illustrated with drawings and photographs, both in colour and black and white, and the list of cited literature provides a comprehensive bibliography.
