About the Author

Ernest P. Walker (1891-1969) began work on Mammals of the World in the early 1930s, when he became assistant director of the National Zoo in Washington. Ronald M. Nowak is the author of the fourth and fifth editions of Walker's Mammals of the World. His other works on mammalogy include North American Quaternary Canis and several parts of the National Geographic Society's Wild Animals of North America, for which he also was editorial consultant. He received a doctorate in biology from the University of Kansas in 1973 and has worked as a mammalogist ever since. He lives in Falls Church, Virginia.
