Definitive resource on all mammal species in 9 volumes
This series is modelled on the definitive reference resource Handbook of the Birds of the World (HBW). The high production quality combined with authoritative information and outstanding illustrations will make this project a one-of-a-kind reference. The volumes are due to be published biannually (though the tempo has increased in recent years), with a special pre-publication offer. Following a reader survey in 2015, Lynx has decided to split Volume 6: Lagomorphs and Rodents into two due to 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.
Forthcoming volumes in this series will be added to this page as soon as we become aware of them.
