Books in the Handbook of the Mammals of the World (HMW) series are the essential work of reference on all the world’s mammals.

Modelled on Lynx Edicions’ definitive Handbook of the Birds of the World (HBW), the Handbook of the Mammals of the World will eventually fill nine volumes, covering all the world’s mammal species. Lynx Edicions’ high production values combined with authoritative information and outstanding illustrations make these books a one-of-a-kind reference work to the mammals of the world. Following a recent reader survey Lynx Edicions has decided to split Volume 6: Lagomorphs and Rodents into two because of the size of the order Rodentia.

The special pre-publication offer for each volume will be applied to all standing orders automatically. Please contact us for more information.

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.
