Mammals of North America

Comprehensive and up-to-date field guide to the mammals of North America. The core of the book consists of 108 colour plates of detailed mammal illustrations. Each species is depicted on these plates, with subspecies, geographic, and sexual variation portrayed whenever relevant. The artwork is supplemented by maps showing present range and by a short paragraph of text highlighting key identification characteristics and relevant aspects of the animal's behavior and ecology.
`Written concisely and clearly, the new Mammals of North America is the only guide available that offers a current treatment of North America's diverse mammals. It clearly fills a critical niche in publications on North American mammals. This book will be indispensable for field biologists, sportsmen, hikers, park-goers and outdoors people alike.' Bruce D. Patterson, President, American Society of Mammalogists.
