About this book

This comprehensive guide details the taxonomy, ecology, behavior, reproductive biology, and distribution of all 109 mammal species in Montana, from the pygmy shrew, one of the tiniest mammals in the world, to the bison, the largest land mammal in North America.

The volume includes over 500 colour photos of animals, habitats, skulls, skins, and anatomical features. Drawings of skulls and other features are scattered throughout the book, and color maps indicating distributions among Montana's counties are provided for each species. Bracketed between an introduction and a checklist are the 109 species accounts, which are organized by mammalian order into six chapters. These chapters cover 20 families, with the dental formulae for every order's families tabled at the beginning of each chapter. The species accounts include descriptions of distinguishing features, distribution, habitat, diet, reproduction, scientific discovery, length measurements, weight, conservation status, and life history variables. The guide concludes with a brief glossary, an extensive bibliography (organized by mammalian order), and a species index.
