About this book

The Handbook of the Mammals of the World is an essential reference series that covers all the world's mammal species. Combining high production values with outstanding photography and illustrations, each encyclopaedic volume provides authoritative information. The seven volumes published so far have covered most major orders except bats. This penultimate volume covers all of the remaining smaller and more obscure orders (Cingulata, Pilosa, Afrosoricida, Macroscelidea, Scandentia, Dermaptera, and Eulipotyphla), other than bats (Chiroptera). From armadillos, sloths, and anteaters to shrews and moles, Volume 8 includes a wide variety of interesting small or medium-sized mammals from around the world. Most of them have different kinds of invertebrate and insectivorous diets, except sloths and colugos, which are arboreal herbivores and folivores.

Volume 8 includes a special chapter on conservation priorities and actions for the orders Cingulata, Pilosa, Afrosoricida, Macroscelidea, Eulipotyphla, Dermoptera, and Scandentia, written by Rosalind Kennerley, Thomas Lacher, Jr., Victor Mason, Shelby McCay, Nicolette Roach, P. J. Stephenson, Mariella Superina & Richard Young.
