The preeminent guide to the world's mammals is now enhanced with a dramatically expanded volume covering 19 orders, including such creatures as elephants, armadillos, and manatees.
Ernest P. Walker (1891-1969) was the assistant director of the National Zoo. He began work on Mammals of the World in the early 1930s. Ronald M. Nowak was a staff mammalogist at the former Office of Endangered Species, US Department of the Interior. He is the coauthor of the fourth edition and the author of the fifth and sixth editions of Walker's Mammals of the World.
If you have other titles in the Walker's Mammals of the World
series, you'll want this one! -- Ian Paulsen * Birdbooker Report
This volume provides highly detailed accounts of the various mammals included... and is well illustrated with color photographs of many of the included mammals. -- Robert E. Hoopes * Wildlife Activist *
The famous Walker's Mammals of the World has been updated... and what an update it is. Rather than the classical two volumes with black-and-white photographs (the last edition is from 1999 and thus almost 20 years old), there is now a single volume with colour photos covering monotremes, marsupials, afrotherians, xenarthrans and sundatherians (ie, Scan-dentia and Dermoptera). -- Frank E. Zachos * Mammalian Biology *
