    A boxed set of two volumes.

    It took several years to produce the entire series of the Handbook of the Mammals of the World (HMW), and we are now happy to provide a new, comprehensive Illustrated Checklist of the Mammals of the World. This latest work updates the taxonomy of each currently recognized species of mammal, providing a complete checklist in a set of two volumes.

    The new illustrated checklist incorporates all recently published revisions in new, brief species accounts for each species. In addition to the updated scientific name of each species, each account includes common names in English, French, German and Spanish, and the IUCN Red List Conservation Category. Taxonomic notes incorporate recent changes, and updated distributions are also included. If subspecies are recognized, they are updated along with their current distributions. Accompanying each species account is a scientific illustration in full color, adapted from the earlier volumes, along with a revised distribution map.

    If you own the entire set of HMW, you will want to add this latest set of volumes to provide up-to-date coverage of all currently recognized species, including recently described forms. The Illustrated Checklist of the Mammals of the World also works well as a complete, stand-alone summary of the current taxonomy and distribution of every currently recognized species of mammal.

    • 27 orders, 167 families, 1,343 genera, 6,562 species (102 extinct and 18 domesticated).

       

    • Features more than 7,200 illustrations, including 800 new ones of primates and more than 100 of other groups.

       

    • Includes 6,442 distribution maps.

    Een absoluut schitterende set, deze 2 boeken, die waarschijnlijk een heel leven mee kunnen. Alle zoogdieren afgebeeld, vaak met meerdere vormen per soort. De tekeningen zijn levensecht en zeer gedetailleerd. Bij alle soorten is een verspreidingskaart afgebeeld en de bijbehorende soortaccounts zijn compact, maar bevatten tegelijkertijd een schat aan (actueel bijgewerkte) taxonomische informatie. Via afbeeldingen op de schutbladen zijn de families snel terug te vinden en verder zoeken naar meer informatie is toegankelijk dankzij 845 literatuurreferenties. Dit alles wordt aangeboden in 2 stevige banden en een bijbehorende foedraal. Wat mij betreft een must-have voor iedere doorgewinterde natuurliefhebber !
