About this book

This new edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded from the previous one in 1994. Of particular importance are the changes it records in species status and distribution. New materials in this edition include lists of subspecies, a brief description of the conservation status of each species, and an expanded introductory section that discusses historical changes in Texas mammals and the history of mammalogy in Texas. The book also contains a thorough overview of the mammals of Texas, abundant photographs and drawings, distribution maps, physical descriptions, and life histories for 184 species of mammals.

This is the standard reference about Texas mammals. Wildlife Activist "A must for anyone seriously interested in the wildlife of Texas." Texas Outdoor Writers Association News "[This book] easily fills the role of both a field guide and a desk reference, and is written in a style that appeals to the professional biologist and amateur naturalist alike.... [It] should prove useful to anyone with an interest in the mammal fauna of Texas or the southern Great Plains." Prairie Naturalist"
