    For the first time ever, you can contemplate All the Mammals of the World together in a single easy-to-use, fully illustrated volume. Created for a broad public, from wildlife enthusiasts to expert mammalogists, reseachers, conservationists, and anyone interested in the spectacular diversity of mammals, this book has something for everyone.

    • Presents 6581 species in total, including 6459 extant wild species, 19 domestic species and 103 extinct species.
    • 7349 illustrations covering all species as well as sexual dimorphism, morphs and some distinctive subspecies.
    • Relevant measurements for length and mass provided when available, as well additional data for groups where important.
    • 6459 distribution maps, with written summary and notes on altitudinal ranges.
    • All 2834 one-country endemic species marked.
    • Species common names provided in English, French, German and Spanish, as well as scientific names.
    • The IUCN Red List category of extinction risk is given for each species to highlight the importance of study and conservation.
    • Taxonomic summary of number of subspecies for each taxon.
    • Appendix listing all taxonomic changes from the Illustrated Checklist of the Mammals of the World to the present, including 107 newly described species and 106 split species, and explaining the most important cases.
    • More than 100 species known to have become extinct since the year 1500 presented separately in their own appendix.
    • Summary of recognized domestic species provided in a separate appendix.
    • A 37-page world atlas of color reference maps, with relevant details of interest to mammal enthusiasts and professionals.
    • The easiest and most enjoyable way to browse through all the mammals of the world.

    All the Mammals of the World has two clear antecedents, with which it shares many of its goals, especially that of spreading and promoting interest in mammals and wildlife worldwide: the Handbook of the Mammals of the World series in 9 volumes, the first printed work to include all the mammals of the world; and the Illustrated Checklist of the Mammals of the World in two volumes, which provides a taxonomic review of the previous publication. All the Mammals of the World in a single volume aims to bring the extraordinary richness and diversity of the world’s mammals closer to a wider audience.

    There are a number of differences between All the Mammals of the World and the Illustrated Checklist in two volumes. An obvious one is that the current book is a single volume, and its price is much less than that of the Checklist. Lynx hopes that it will be more accessible to many more people for whom the Checklist was perhaps too technical and not so affordable.

    To summarize, for the first time ever, the reader can contemplate all of the world’s mammal species in a single, easy-to-use, illustrated volume, and at significantly lower price than even one volume of the other works covering the mammals of the world. We hope that this new book will reach a large number of people, sparking and growing their interest in mammals and wildlife, and that for many of them, it will be a first step toward a passion for nature, biodiversity and the preservation of our planet.
