New Encyclopedia of Mammals by David Macdonald
The last decades of the 20th century saw a flowering
of knowledge about the behaviour, ecology, and evolution of mammals,
including ourselves. This new information is brought together, in highly
accessible form, by an international team of scientists led by David
Macdonald of Oxford University. The information should be both
authoritative enough to be used as a serious reference work by
professionals, but is presented clearly and attractively enough to
fascinate anyone with an interest in wildlife. The "New Encyclopedia of
Mammals" builds on the success of its first edition, published in 1983, to
produce an up-to-date, authoritative, and readable species-by-species
guide to all the mammals of the world.
