Atlas of World Mammals  Volume 2

Mammals are animals with mammary gland, that is a class of vertebrateanimals that produce milk for infants. They are also characterized bywarm blooded bodies and the presence of hair or fur. Mammals have three characteristics: -they have breasts, -their skin with some exceptions (are covered with hair), and they breed with offspring. There aredifferent ways of living for the different species, some living above theground and some under the ground, some in the trees and some in wateror in air. When it comes to looking for food, mammals live almost everywhere. Some mammals live near human communities. These include mice and rats, which often feed on household waste. Most wild mammals can only live in their natural habitats. Mammals may be carnivores and herbivores or both. There are species that feed on carrion and dead animals, but with the exception of some species that eat special food such as Australian koala bear and lazy bear, which eat only a certain type of foliage, most mammals eat what they can find if they need to.

This indispensable reference work belongs in public and academic libraries throughout the world and on the shelf of every biologist who works with mammals.--Sergio Solari and Robert J. Baker "Journal of Mammalogy"

Mammal Species of the World

"A uniquely valuable compendium of taxonomic and distributional data on the world's living and historically extinct mammalian species." -- Journal of Mammalogy "A valuable reference work and a vital tool, particularly for researchers." -- Journal of Natural History "By far the most convenient source for finding the correct scientific name of any mammal and should be on the reference shelf of libraries striving to have useful science sections." -- Science Books and Films "An outstanding and authoritative work, and it should serve as a standard reference for mammalian species taxonomy for many years to come." -- Journal of Mammalian Evolution

Mammals of South America Volume 2

The first such book of its kind, Mammals of South America both summarizes existing information and encourages further research of the mammals indigenous to the region.

Mammals of South America  Volume 2

The vast terrain between Panama and Tierra del Fuego contains some of the worlds richest mammalian fauna, but until now it has lacked a comprehensive systematic reference to the identification, distribution, and taxonomy of its mammals. The first such book of its kind, Mammals of South America both summarizes existing information and encourages further research of the mammals indigenous to the region. It includes identification keys and brief descriptions of each order, family, and genus. Species accounts include taxonomic descriptions, synonymies, keys to identification, distributions with maps and a gazetteer of marginal localities, lists of recognized subspecies, brief summaries of natural history information, and discussions of issues related to taxonomic interpretations.

Mammals of South America Volume 2

The second installment in a planned three-volume series, this book provides the first substantive review of South American rodents published in over fifty years.

Mammals of South America  Volume 2

The second installment in a planned three-volume series, this book provides the first substantive review of South American rodents published in over fifty years. Increases in the reach of field research and the variety of field survey methods, the introduction of bioinformatics, and the explosion of molecular-based genetic methodologies have all contributed to the revision of many phylogenetic relationships and to a doubling of the recognized diversity of South American rodents. The largest and most diverse mammalian order on Earth—and an increasingly threatened one—Rodentia is also of great ecological importance, and Rodents is both a timely and exhaustive reference on these ubiquitous creatures. From spiny mice and guinea pigs to the oversized capybara, this book covers all native rodents of South America, the continental islands of Trinidad and Tobago, and the Caribbean Netherlands off the Venezuelan coast. It includes identification keys and descriptions of all genera and species; comments on distribution; maps of localities; discussions of subspecies; and summaries of natural, taxonomic, and nomenclatural history. Rodents also contains a detailed list of cited literature and a separate gazetteer based on confirmed identifications from museum vouchers and the published literature.

Atlas of Mammalian Chromosomes

A stunning visual collection of the banded metaphase chromosomekaryotypes from some 850 species of mammals, the Atlas of MammalianChromosomes represents an unabridged compendium of the state ofthis genomic art form. Bringing together information currentlyscattered throughout the cytogenetics literature for scores ofpublished and unpublished species, this atlas features high-qualitykaryotype images for nearly every mammal studied to date, making itthe most comprehensive assemblage of high-resolution chromosomephotographs available--a critically invaluable resource for today'scomparative genomics era. For every available species, the Atlas of Mammalian Chromosomespresents the best karyotype produced, the common and Latin name ofthe species, the published citation, and the contributing authors.Most karyotypes are G-banded, revealing the chromosomal bar codesof homologous segments among related species. Addressing the mandate of the Human Genome Project to annotate thegenomes of other organisms as well, the Atlas of MammalianChromosomes offers a step forward in our understanding of speciesformation, of genome organization, and of DNA script for naturalselection. It is an invaluable resource for geneticists,mammalogists, and biologists interested in comparative genomics,systematics, and chromosome structure.

Mammals of Africa

Mammals of Africa (MoA) is a series of six volumes which describes, in detail, every currently recognized species of African land mammal. This is the first time that such extensive coverage has ever been attempted, and the volumes incorporate the very latest information and detailed discussion of the morphology, distribution, biology and evolution (including reference to fossil and molecular data) of Africa's mammals. With 1,160 species and 16 orders, Africa has the greatest diversity and abundance of mammals in the world. The reasons for this and the mechanisms behind their evolution are given special attention in the series. Each volume follows the same format, with detailed profiles of every species and higher taxa. The series includes some 660 colour illustrations by Jonathan Kingdon and his many drawings highlight details of morphology and behaviour of the species concerned. Diagrams, schematic details and line drawings of skulls and jaws are by Jonathan Kingdon and Meredith Happold. Every species also includes a detailed distribution map. Extensive references alert readers to more detailed information.
