About this book

Language: English

The world has 1.324 million living species of vertebrate and invertebrate animals. Of these 1.212 million (96%) are invertebrates. The number of vertebrates therefore amount only 52,000. which is only 4% of the total animal population. Of these vertebrates. 6.5 %. or 5500 species, are mammals. The proportion of threatened or endangered mammals amount to 20 % or 1100 of the total mammal population. Regularly more and more species of mammals are added to this threatened and endangered list. The problem of animal populations in the world getting reduced this vvay is because their rates of elimination is much higher than the rates of reproduction. Therefore the application of knowledge and new technologies on animal reproduction for the prevention of extinction of animals from the earth has emerged as a main strategy to arrest this trend.

Reproduction in Wild Mammals gives coverage of all Orders of living mammals in the world. lt also gives information on the main characteristics of each animal Family and includes information on their reproduction. Thus Reproduction in Wild Mammals will be most useful to those interested in wildlife conservation and reproduction, particularly to veterinarians and scientists involved in animal breeding projects and veterinary postgraduate and undergraduate students. The author of this publication, Dr. A S Abeyratne, is a Sri Lankan veterinarian and a permanent resident in USA. is a devoted wild life enthusiast and a specialist in Animal Reproduction.
