About this book

Provides a survey and synthesis of current knowledge of more than 650 species of land and marine mammals found in Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Brazil. Chapters present not only up-to-date taxonomic information but also ecological and behavioural characteristics, conservation status, and distribution maps for most species. The illustrations by Fiona Reid are superb. New to this volume are chapters on the fossil record of the region and on its current biodiversity and biogeography.
`John Eisenberg and Kent Redford display the glorious breadth and quality of our knowledge, describing what we know of the region's more than 650 mammal species comprehensively and accessibly. Fiona Reid's colour plates are superb in accuracy and detail. Overall, this is a magnificent compendium of existing knowledge, and one that is certain to be a standard reference for many years to come.'Adrian Barnett, 'Nature'
