About this book

More than 10 years in the making, Mammals of Africa contains the very latest information and detailed discussion of the morphology, distribution, biology and evolution (including reference to fossil and molecular data) of every currently recognized species of African land mammal.

Volume I: Introductory Chapters and Afrotheria comprises eight introductory chapters covering topics such as evolution, geography and geology, biotic zones, classification, behaviour and morphology. The rest of this volume is devoted to the Afrotheria, a grouping that comprises six orders and 49 species; these are the hyraxes, elephants, dugong, manatees, otter-shrews, golden-moles, sengis (elephant-shrews) and aardvark. Jonathan Kingdon has contributed colour illustrations to this volume, while Meredith Happold has contributed line drawings for the small mammals.
