About this book

Please note that this is a reprint of the 2009 edition without new information.

Covering over 400 species, this work presents all of the terrestrial mammal species of the Western Palearctic, serving as an excellent guide to the great wealth of fauna in this region. The geographical region covered is the whole of Europe, North Africa, with the tropic of Cancer as its southern boundary, and the Middle East and Western Palearctic with the limit at 50° East, the meridian running across Arabia and the Caspian Sea (ending at the Svalbard archipelago in the north, and the Azores at 30° West in the west).

Species accounts are concise and authoritative, giving information on size, distribution, habitat, behaviour, reproduction and feeding. Each account is supported by distribution maps and superb illustrations. The book features over 100 plates, comprising over 600 colour species artworks. Variation between the sexes is illustrated and anatomical diagrams are provided to assist identification.

Media reviews

"This book is truly the mammal equivalent of the Collins Bird Guide. All we need is a reptile and amphibian guide for the same region, and we'll have the tetrapods all covered!"
- Birdwatch (January 2010)

"At last, an authoritative, up-to-date handbook on the region's mammalian fauna. Overall, this is an excellent, useful guide."
- BBC Wildlife (January 2010)
