Fra forlagets hjemmeside:

China's stunning diversity of natural habitats--from parched deserts to lush tropical forests--is home to more than 10 percent of the world's mammal species. A Guide to the Mammals of China is the most comprehensive guide to all 556 species of mammals found in China. It is the only single-volume reference of its kind to fully describe the physical characteristics, geographic distribution, natural history, and conservation status of every species. An up-to-date distribution map accompanies each species account, and color plates illustrate a majority of species. Written by a team of leading specialists, including Professor Wang Sung who provides a history of Chinese mammalogy, A Guide to the Mammals of China is the ideal reference for researchers and a delight for anyone interested in China's rich mammal fauna.

  • The definitive, comprehensive, up-to-date guide to all of China's 556 mammal species
  • High-quality color plates accompany the detailed text
  • Each species account comes with a distribution map
  • Organized taxonomically for easy reference
  • Includes an extensive bibliography
