Abstract:

Photographs and text examine the world of mammals, depicting their development, feeding habits, courtship rituals, protective behavior, and physical adaptation to their various habitats. With over 500 stunning, full-color photographs, this continent-by-continent guide is a celebration of our closest, and most successful, animal group. More than just a species-by-species account, Mammal explains when, where, how, and why the unique diversity of mammals came about. The engaging narrative leads the reader through each habitat, setting the mammals in the context of their environment, revealing both characteristic and often surprising behavior. This is a beautiful volume that the whole family can enjoy.
