About this book

Much-needed work on the rich mammal fauna of the Indomalayan or Oriental region, comprising southeastern Asia from Pakistan and southern China to Indonesia (except New Guinea) and the Philippines. Over one thousand species are found in the region, and this is the first comprehensive work to bring together information on all of them. It provides a comprehensive guide to identification of all families, genera and species, with illustration of key characters. There are maps of geographical range, a revised classification based on recent taxonomic research, a complete nomenclatural list documenting 8,000 scientific names, and a comprehensive bibliography with over 3,000 entries. A landmark work.
`...an invaluable reference work, providing a major advance in the understanding of the mammal fauna of a very rich region...' AM Hutson, ORYX
