Customer Reviews:

Comprehensive reference series
by Roman Filipsky in the Czech Republic (01/02/2013)

Judging from the first two volumes, this is to become a great reference book for anybody interested in mammals and nature in general. Clearly written with great color plates of all species described and utilizing latest research info. The only thing I regret – and consider this a big disappointment is that no drawings of skulls of described species are offered as well as no dental formulae or drawings of dental patterns, especially important for small mammal species. I think a work like this should have definitely include those. I see no reason why this was omitted. Otherwise an excellent series.

 

Forthcoming volumes in this series will be added to this page as soon as we become aware of them.

Please contact customer.services@nhbs.com about setting up a standing order, or if you would like to be notified when we add new volumes.
