About this book

Thirty chapters describe fifteen mammalian orders in detail: their taxnomic groupings; the origins of their various subgroups; geographical distribution; major phyletic units; and specific evolutionary trends. The major geological deposits of the African Cenozoic are reviewed, and the broader patterns of faunal evolution are synthesised in an attempt to cut across taxonomic boundaries and demonstrate the interdependence of faunal events on the continent as a whole. Man's impact on wildlife is also assessed.
