Baltimore 2020, geb., Großformat, 736 Seiten, 300 Farbfotos, 149 Farb- & 189 s/w illustrationen, 22 Karten. There are more than 6,400 species in the class Mammalia, including the blue whale – the largest animal that has ever lived – and the pygmy shrew, which weighs little more than a penny. Such diversity among mammals has allowed them to play critical roles in every ecosystem, whether marine, freshwater, alpine, tundra, forest, or desert. Reflecting the expertise and perspective of five leading mammalogists, the fifth edition of Mammalogy significantly updates taxonomy, adds a new introductory chapter on the science of mammalogy, and highlights several recently described species. To enhance its appeal to students, textual material has been reduced, consolidated, and streamlined without sacrificing breadth or depth of coverage. The fifth edition includes for the first time colour photographs throughout, chapters rearranged and grouped to best reflect phylogenetic relationships, with updated numbers of genera and species for each family. It shows updated mammalian structural and functional adaptations, as well as ordinal fossil histories and recent advances in mammalian phylogeny, biogeography, social behaviour, and ecology, with 12 new or revised cladograms reflecting current research findings.
