Mammalian Evolution, Diversity and Systematics – eBook PDF

There are more than 6,000 mammalian species, among them our own. Research on our evolutionary cousins has a long history, but the last two decades have seen particularly rapid progress in disentangling the interrelationships and evolutionary history of mammals.

The present volume, Mammalian Evolution, Diversity and Systematics (PDF) combines up-to-date reviews on mammalian phylogenetics with taxonomic, paleontological, and evolutionary chapters and also summarizes the historical development of our insights in mammalian relationships, and thus our own place in the Tree of Life. This ebook places the present biodiversity crisis in context, with 1 out of 4 mammal species threatened by extinction, and reviews the distribution and conservation of mammalian diversity across the world. This volume is the introductory tome to the new Mammalia series of the Handbook of Zoology and will be essential reading for zoologists, mammalogists, and conservationists alike.


“This great ebook is a valuable collection of well-researched essays that will remain reference reading on their subjects for many years ahead.” – Alessandro Minelli in: Journal of Zoological Systematics and Evolutionary Research (2019), 1-2

Das Buch profitiert von der Ausgewogenheit zwischen der systematischen Besprechung der einzelnen rezenten und fossilen Gruppen und den Grundlagen der Genetik, Physiologie, Embryologie und Artenschutz der Säugetiere. Mit dem “Handbook of Zoology: Mammalia” liegt ein umfassendes Werk an Säugetierforschung vor, das sowohl textlich als auch bildlich sehr übersichtlich gestaltet ist. Es besticht mit seinen hervorragenden Bildtafeln und Schaubildern, die dem aktuellen Wissenstand entsprechen, wodurch es auch als Lehrbuch sehr gut geeignet erscheint.” Cathrin Pfeiff in: GMIT 75 (2019), 87-88
