The 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.
