What People are Saying About This

B. D. Patterson

"This latest edition of Walker's continues to fill a crucial niche in documenting global mammalian diversity at the genus level. Its accounts transcend the telegraphic, taxonomic accounts in Mammal Species of the World while abstracting those in the massive nine-volume Handbook of the Mammals of the World."
