"Mammals of Mexico" is the first reference book in English on
the more than 500 types of mammal species found in the diverse
Mexican habitats, which range from the Sonoran Desert to the
Chiapas cloud forests. The authoritative species accounts are
written by a Who's Who of experts compiled by famed mammalogist and
conservationist Gerardo Ceballos.
Ten years in the making, "Mammals of Mexico" covers everything
from obscure rodents to whales, bats, primates, and wolves. It is
thoroughly illustrated with color photographs and meticulous
artistic renderings, as well as range maps for each species.
Introductory chapters discuss biogeography, conservation, and
evolution. The final section of the book illustrates the skulls,
jaws, and tracks of Mexico's mammals.
This unparalleled collection of scientific information on, and
photographs of, Mexican wildlife belongs on the shelf of every
mammalogist, in public and academic libraries, and in the hands of
anyone curious about Mexico and its wildlife.
