Media reviews

"A uniquely valuable compendium of taxonomic and distributional data on the world's living and historically extinct mammalian species. Contributors and editors alike deserve the thanks of all mammalogists for helping to forge the nomenclatural mesh that holds our science together."
Journal of Mammalogy

"To refer to this work as a checklist undervalues it and does not give sufficient credit to the authors and editors for their meticulous efforts in its production. A valuable reference work and a vital tool, particularly for researchers."
Journal of Natural History

"By far the most convenient source for finding the correct scientific name of any mammal and should be on the reference shelf of libraries striving to have useful science sections."
Science Books and Films

"The editors and authors are to be congratulated for undertaking such an outstanding and authoritative work, and it should serve as a standard reference for mammalian species taxonomy for many years to come."
Journal of Mammalian Evolution

"A landmark reference. By far the most authoritative and extensive compilation of the world's mammal species."
– Ronald Nowak, author, Walker's Mammals of the World, 4th, 5th, and 6th editions
