Editorial Reviews

Review

Scientifically detailed and professionally produced... Highly recommended.

(Choice)

A solid and valuable resource.

(Maureen A. O'Leary Journal of Mammalian Evolution)

Without a doubt, for anyone working on artiodactyls this is an essential reference. This is the most up to date collection of work on fossil artiodactyls, including those outside North America, published in decades.

(B.L. Beatty PalArch's Journal of Vertebrate Palaeontology)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a fantastic resource for anyone interested in an overview of the Artiodactyls. My only complaint is the rather skimpy coverage of some groups like the Bovidae. Many other groups get wonderfully comprehensive coverage and this easily makes up for the rest making this a fantastic book for those interested in the subject.

A must have for any Paleo-enthusiast. It is packed with information and has many illustrations. A little pricey, but worth the money.
