About this book

Proceedings of a symposium held at the 7th International Theriological Conference in Acapulco, Mexico, in September 1997, with additional papers.

Gliding flight in mammals has evolved independently in several lineages of rodents, in Dermoptera, and in three lineages of marsupials. Gliding mammals range from temperate woodlands to tropical rainforests.

Biology of Gliding Mammals provides an appropriate coverage of placental and marsupial gliding species. The topics covered include: an overview of species and their conservation status; energetics and lifehistory traits; social dominance; effects of habitat fragmentation; the influence of dietary requirements; and morphological adaptations for gliding.
