About this book

The definitive handbook for the study of British mammals. The text covers appearance, distribution, ecology and behaviour of all land and sea mammals, a history of the mammal fauna, habitats and their mammalian communities, extinct and introduced species and mammals and the law.

Over 100 of the leading mammalogists, mostly members of The Mammal Society, have contributed to this revision. It benefits from a superb collection of colour plates, especially commissioned from Guy Troughton, some excellent colour photos of mammal behaviour, and a range of new maps and diagrams.
