9780691140926: Mammals of North America: Second Edition (Princeton Field Guides)

The best-selling field guide that "sets new standards" (New Scientist) and "makes all other field guides for mammals of the United States. . . and Canada obsolete" (Journal of Mammalogy) is now even better. Covering 20 species recognized since 2002 and including 13 new color plates, this fully revised edition of Mammals of North America illustrates all 462 known mammal species in the United States and Canada--each in beautiful color and accurate detail. With a more up-to-date species list than any other guide, improved facing-page descriptions, easier-to-read distribution maps, updated common and scientific names, and track and scat illustrations, this slim, light, and easy-to-use volume is the must-have source for identifying North American mammals.


Roland Kays and Don Wilson have scoured the technical literature to pull out the key differences between similar species, and illustrated these whenever possible, making the guide useful to amateur naturalists and professional zoologists alike. Casual animal watchers will appreciate the overview of mammal diversity and the tips on identifying animals they can spy in their binoculars, while scientists will appreciate the exacting detail needed to distinguish similar species, including illustrations of shrew teeth, bat toes, and whale dorsal fins.

  • The most current taxonomy/species list

From the Back Cover:


"Mammals of North America is a must for anyone really interested in properly identifying every animal that can be found on our continent. The text superbly highlights every characteristic needed for species identification. The latest range maps, shown on the facing page, confirm whether or not the species you think you have identified can be found where you are seeing your subject. The superb paintings of all the mammals have captured the very essence of the animals."--Leonard Lee Rue III


"Written concisely and clearly, the new Mammals of North America is the only guide available that offers a current treatment of North America's diverse mammals. It clearly fills a critical niche in publications on North American mammals. This book will be indispensable for field biologists, sportsmen, hikers, park-goers and outdoors people alike."--Bruce D. Patterson, President, American Society of Mammalogists


About the Author:

Roland W. Kays is the curator of mammals at the New York State Museum. Don E. Wilson is a senior scientist at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History. His books include The Smithsonian Book of North American Mammals and Mammal Species of the World.
