About this book

The most comprehensive work to date on the systematics, relationships, and occurrences of all mammal taxa, living and extinct, down to the rank of genus. Since George Gaylord Simpson's 1945 classification, the palaeontological record has been greatly expanded, the timescale has been recalibrated, and much debate and progress concerning the theoretical underpinnings of systemization has occured. Incorporating these developments, this impressive volume will be the standard reference to mammalian classification for many years to come.

As a reference work especially for fossil mammals it is without rival. -- D. C. Kalthoff Palaontologie An extremely useful book. -- F. S. Szalay Choice
