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 IV: Hedgehogs, Shrews and Bats profiles 156 species of insectivores, comprising the hedgehogs and shrews. The rest of this volume is devoted to the 224 species of African bats. The latter are divided into nine families, namely fruit bats, horseshoe bats, leaf-nosed bats, false vampire bats, mouse-tailed bats, sheath-tailed bats, slit-faced bats, free-tailed bats, and vesper bats. Colour illustrations are by Jonathan Kingdon, while Meredith Happold has contributed the line drawings.
