About this book

Revised, updated, and with more than 50 new colour photographs, "Rocky Mountain Mammals" is a non-technical guide to the mammals of the Southern Rocky Mountains and their foothills, with special emphasis on Rocky Mountain National Park and vicinity.

In seventy-two species accounts, David M. Armstrong describes each animal and its signs, habits, habitat, and natural history, noting times when seasonal events such as elk sparring occur. Introductory materials and appendices offer rich context and wildlife-watching support, including a checklist with page numbers for quick field reference, an identification key, a glossary, derivations of scientific names, and advice on how, when, and where to watch mammals. Armstrong introduces mammalian evolution, anatomy, and distribution and offers perspective on how the local fauna fits into its geographical setting and into past and potential future faunas of the region.

Contents

Introduction; What is a Mammal?; Mammalian Distribution; How to Observe Mammals; Order Soricomorpha; Order Chiroptera; Order Primates; Order Lagomorpha; Order Rodentia; Order Carnivore; Order Artiodactyla.

Media reviews
This new book should be in the day pack, backpack, saddlebag, purse, or glove compartment of all who visit the high country in and around Rocky Mountain National Park. -- Bloomsbury Review. "Armstrong is unusually successful in presenting scientific fact without seeming to; this reads like popular nature writing but is heavy with interesting information on how each animal makes its living and interacts with its environment." -- Books of the Southwest.
