The well-illustrated book will be a boon to most residents of Indiana, who have little acquaintance with the state's 57 species of wild, mostly small, secretive, and nocturnal mammals, and it is sure to please the most avid ecology enthusiast. Summarizing current knowledge about Indiana's mammal species, the volume will also be an important reference for biologists, veterinarians, and wildlife managers throughout the Midwest and beyond."--BOOK JACKET." ;
