Edited by Andrew T. SmithYan Xie

China's stunning diversity of natural habitats - from parched deserts to lush tropical forests - is home to more than 10 percent of the world's mammal species. "A Guide to the Mammals of China" is the most comprehensive guide to all 556 species of mammals found in China.

An up-to-date distribution map accompanies each species account, and colour plates illustrate a majority of species. Written by a team of leading specialists, including Professor Wang Sung who provides a history of Chinese mammalogy, "A Guide to the Mammals of China" is the ideal reference for researchers and a delight for anyone interested in China's rich mammal fauna. High-quality colour plates accompany the detailed text. This title is organized taxonomically for easy reference and includes an extensive bibliography.
