Handbook of the Mammals of the World

The huge success of the Handbook of the Birds of the World clearly demonstrates that works of such scope, excellence, consummate expertise and beauty provide a vital foundation for the appreciation and conservation of the species they describe. This fundamental principle also underlies a new companion project, the long-awaited Handbook of the Mammals of the World. For the first time ever, this new 8-volume series will cover every species of mammal on Earth with the combination of scientific rigour and readability for which Lynx Edicions has become well known.
