Oxford: Oxford University Press, (2001. first edition), Quarto, colour photographs, very good copy in chipped dustwrapper.
The last decades of the twentieth century saw a flowering of knowledge about the behaviour, ecology, and evolution of mammals, including humans. This new information is brought together, in highly accessible form, by an international team of scientists led by David Macdonald of Oxford University. Uniquely, the information is both authoritative enough to be used as a serious reference work by professionals and presented clearly and attractively enough to fascinate anyone with an interest in wildlife. The New Encyclopedia of Mammals builds on the success of its first edition, published in 1983, to produce an up to date, authoritative, and hugely readable species by species guide to all the mammals of the world. For new edition see [stock id 25294].
