Published by Lynx Edicions in association with Conservation International and IUCN

The first work to illustrate and describe every living species of mammal on Earth.

The Handbook of Mammals of the World (HMW) is an unprecedented, lavishly illustrated reference work for the Class Mammalia. This series of 9 large-format volumes describes and illustrates every currently recognized mammal species, along with a detailed overview of each mammalian Family. It provides up-to-date information on the evolutionary relationships, natural history, ecology, and current conservation status for all mammals. Every species is illustrated, and each Family Chapter contains beautiful color photographs of mammals in action. HMW provides comprehensive worldwide coverage by involving an international group of expert authors, each of whom is a leading authority on their respective groups of mammals.

This set includes all volumes (1 to 9) of the Handbook of the Mammals of the World series.

PLEASE NOTE: we are currently reprinting Volume 2: Hoofed Mammals. It will be available at the end of December. If you purchase the 9-volume set, we will send you the rest of the volumes now, and Volume 2 as soon as it is printed (no additional shipping charges).
