About this book

The Sumatran Rhinoceros (Dicerorhinus sumatrensis) inhabited one of the largest distribution areas of any other large mammal in South-East Asia. From possibly hundreds of thousands rhinos, today there are maybe a few dozens. The purpose of this monograph is to document the natural history of one of the most enigmatic, large mammal living on Earth.

This book brings together in a single volume a synthesis of research conducted since the discovery of the species. The sources used are bibliographical, photographical and iconographical, from published and unpublished material, on evolution, systematics, distribution, morphology and ecology of the Sumatran rhinoceros. The species conservation history is described exhaustively and in-depth.
