Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this for my 4000 level Mammalogy class. After the second week I discovered that 19 hours of all math and science classes was a bit much and with Mammalogy being the only optional class I was signed up for - It was the class that had to be dropped. I was devastated since it was my favorite of all of my classes, but it was the right thing to do. Anyway - even though I won't be taking this class until the spring, I still find myself reading this book. It's complex enough that you feel like you are learning something when reading, but clean enough that you don't really need an instructor there to fully understand. Now this is not a deep study of the systems and such, rather an overview of the different families and their systems and structural differences. This is an excellent intro to mammalogy and covers everything from the evolution of the different systems to distinguishing features. Very good text book. I would have liked a few colored pictures but it's not a huge issue.
