About this book

The experts at the People's Trust for Endangered Species have compiled this introduction to the mammals in the UK and around its coast. From timid shrews to commonly seen rabbits, red deer to minke whales, and including the wide range of bats, there are over 60 resident wild mammal species in the UK or around its coasts. The aim of this book is to provide a brief account of these and also of some that are no longer here. They represent a diverse and sometimes surprising group.

*Features 64 mammal species found in Britain and around its coast, along with some that are now extinct - one species per page
*Describes each species and gives key facts relating to size, lifespan, reproduction, diet, habitat and predators
*Includes notes on threats, status and conservation
*Colour photographs illustrate each mammal and its identifying features
*Individual maps show the distribution of each species in the British Isles
*Includes a mammal `family tree' showing how the main mammal groups evolved and a guide to the tracks of foxes, badgers, rabbits and deer
*Foreword by Pat Morris.
