Abstract:

"America north of Mexico is home to more than 400 species of mammals. This comprehensive volume, containing more than 450 color and black-and-white photographs and detailed, accessibly written descriptions, surveys the rich and varied world of North American mammals - from familiar species such as bears, deer, seals, squirrels, and rabbits to those that are more secretive or obscure, including shrews, bats, and voles." "Written by more than 200 experts, each with extensive experience in the field, descriptions include distribution maps, identification guidelines, scientific and common names, and information on behavior, diet, reproduction, growth, longevity, predation, and habitat preferences. The accounts summarize the current population status of each animal and detail distribution changes owing to human activities."--BOOK JACKET.
