Editorial Reviews

Review

Provides comprehensive data on the distribution, physiology, ecology, behavior and commercial value of both game and non-game species of terrestrial mammals... This volume is an essential for any professional in the areas of wildlife management or biology, and of great value to anyone interested in the life histories of North American mammals.

(Northeastern Naturalist)

Whether your interest in wildlife is as a wildlife manager, hunter or nature lover, a new book offers information on every mammal found in North America. Wild Mammals of North America, Biology, Management, and Conservation contains illustrations and detailed information on 57 mammalian species, with contributions from 100 leading authorities.

(Progressive Farmer)

I am very excited to now review a classic work in the field of North American Mammals. The goal of this book is to provide a wide ranging audience including professional biologists and interested conservationists review chapters dealing with mammals of that usually require some form of management... This new volume contains a total of 1000+ pages of text, 55 chapters, and over 100 contributors having been involved in writing the chapters. The authors all have direct experience with the animals they are writing about and this makes their work particularly valuable... This should be mandatory reading for anyone contemplating research on one of the species covered within this book... For AZA institutions heavily involved in North American species this book comes recommended.

(Library News for Zoos and Aquariums)

Anyone needing information on the life history and management of North American mammals will find this work a comprehensive and useful resource.

(Choice)

An excellent, encyclopedic review of the biology of North American mammals.

(Alecander Hristov Dairy Herd Network)

Review

An ambitious and important contribution.

(American Scientist)

There has been a need for some time now for a major work on mammals which includes a detailed description of each species, describes its biology and discusses management techniques and research. Wild Mammals of North America fills that void and represents a major contribution to reference literature on mammals.

(Canadian Field-Naturalist)

An enormous amount of firsthand experience and published data have been brought together in a way never previously achieved.

(Journal of Natural History)

For reference and as a textbook, Wild Mammals of North America is excellent.

(Nature)

May be easily read by scientists and laymen alike. The authors impart a great deal of management and conservation information about each species or species group while considering the economic and cultural pressures our society exerts on the animals and their environment.

Format: Hardcover
For up-to-date information on the mammals of North America - refer to this book. Current research on the study of mammals has brought wildlife science to life. The volume is an updated version of Chapman and Feldhamer's earlier edition. Anyone studying animals should obtain a copy.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Shawn Crimmins on October 27, 2006
Format: Hardcover
This text provides an in depth review of the biology of virtually every North American mammal. It is an excellent resource for those conducting research on a variety of taxa. This text is probably a bit too in depth to be very useful as a required text for mammalogy courses, but it is still a great resource for educators as it provides detailed information on nearly every life history aspect of the included species.

Format: Hardcover
This is an unsurpassed work in its field, which contains the details and minutia researchers are after. Some of the best biologists in the country are represented here; people who, in some cases, have made it their life's work to study these animals. You get an excellent, well documented distillation of their work.

I am extremely pleased with the purchase of this book. The book was offered at about 20% of its list price and was a display copy in like new condition with intact dust cover. It was for a gift and worked perfectly.
