About this book

Artiodactyls are diverse and successful hoofed mammals. A tremendous amount of research has been conducted on this important order. The Evolution of Artiodactyls synthesizes this research and explores evolutionary topics and trends among all living artiodactyl families as well as many that are extinct.

"Scientifically detailed and professionally produced [...] Highly recommended."
- Choice 2008

"A solid and valuable resource."
– Maureen A. O'Leary, Journal of Mammalian Evolution 2008

"Without a doubt, for anyone working on artiodactyls this is an essential reference. This is the most up to date collection of work on fossil artiodactyls, including those outside North America, published in decades."
– B.L. Beatty, PalArch's Journal of Vertebrate Palaeontology 2009
