Andrew Spalton and Hadi Al Hikmani’s book, The Arabian Leopards of Oman (2014), is an important resource for anyone interested in the Dhofar region and I am so pleased to see that they have another book coming out soon: Dhofar: From Monsoon Mountains to Sand Seas, Celebrating the Natural Diversity of Oman’s Dhofar Region.
