Oliver P. Pearson's studies on mammalian biology remain standard reading for ecologists, physiologists, taxonomists and biogeographers. These papers continue to expand an understanding of the ecology and evolution of subterranean mammals, and of ecology, taxonomy and biogeography of Neotropical mammals, a group that was central to the latter half of Pearson's career.
