A companion work to the Handbook of birds of the world [HBW]. In this second volume of HMW the hoofed mammals are revealed in all their fascinating detail, in riveting accounts written by some of the most renowned authorities in the world. The species accounts supply complete and up-to-date information at a time when new and increasingly sophisticated methods of DNA analysis are reshaping our knowledge of these species; to give just one example, the family Bovidae has almost doubled its size in the last five years, to the 279 distinct species known today. This series illustrates and describes all the mammal species of the world and is to be completed in nine volumes.
