Editorial Reviews

Review

A uniquely valuable compendium of taxonomic and distributional data on the world's living and historically extinct mammalian species. Contributors and editors alike deserve the thanks of all mammalogists for helping to forge the nomenclatural mesh that holds our science together.

(Journal of Mammalogy)

To refer to this work as a checklist undervalues it and does not give sufficient credit to the authors and editors for their meticulous efforts in its production. A valuable reference work and a vital tool, particularly for researchers.

(Journal of Natural History)

By far the most convenient source for finding the correct scientific name of any mammal and should be on the reference shelf of libraries striving to have useful science sections.

(Science Books and Films)

The editors and authors are to be congratulated for undertaking such an outstanding and authoritative work, and it should serve as a standard reference for mammalian species taxonomy for many years to come.

(Journal of Mammalian Evolution)

The third edition adds to its reputation as an outstanding and authorative work.

(National Museum of Natural History Weekly Update & Forecast)

Impressive and elegant work.

(G. R. Seamons Reference Reviews)

A landmark reference. By far the most authoritative and extensive compilation of the world's mammal species.

(Ronald Nowak, author, Walker's Mammals of the World, 4th, 5th, and 6th editions)

A must-have text for any professional mammalogist, and a useful and authoritative reference for scientists and students in other disciplines.

(Southeastern Naturalist)

A magnificent work important to anyone seriously interested in mammals. This work is essential for academic or special libraries supporting zoology or conservation and for large public libraries.

(American Reference Books Annual)

As were many of our colleagues, we were waiting for this revised edition since 2003... We can say that the wait was worth it.

(Sergio Solari and Robert J. Baker Journal of Mammalogy)

Format: Hardcover
without doubt Wilson and Reeder's book is THE source of information for people looking for mammals in museums and old scientific publications. the superb listing of synonyms, the listings of the scientist describing the clades, and the brief biogeographic notes makes this book invaluable for people having any taxonomic question. The main attitude seems to be one of splitters, giving a lot of specific names to various populations others consider a single species, the biogeography can be a little more detailed, but there is no other source with that thoroughness and completeness in mammalian taxonomy.
I'm anxiously waiting a new edition
