Eminent authorities from around the world have contributed to this book on ruminants, integrating information from palaeontology, molecular and population genetics, anatomy, morphology, and field studies of behaviour, ecology, and the effects of climate change. Also covered are the genetics, morphology, and behaviour of the saola (one of several new species recently found in the Annamite Mountains between Laos and Vietnam) and other survivors from isolated and ancient branches of the ruminant family tree.
"This book on artiodactyl evolution, ecology, systematics, and conservation is both sound and stimulating."
- Rob DeSalle, American Museum of Natural History
