ENV: Mammals of North America

Great book, but note that this is not a revised, updated edition, and that a great many taxonomic revisions have been made in the last 25 years, and no small number of new species described in recent years.

The classic book, The Mammals of North America, 2nd Edition, by E. Raymond Hall, 2 volume box set, ISBN 1-930665-35-0, is now available from The Blackburn Press.

Reprinted here from the 1981 edition by John Wiley and Sons, The Mammals of North America is the only work to provide all-inclusive information for the entire continent and continues to be an indispensable reference source for zoologists, botanists, entomologists, epidemiologists, parasitologists – all whose interests touch on the native mammals.

E. Raymond Hall was one of the outstanding mammalogists of the century. The Mammals of North America is considered to be among the most important faunal works ever published. Hall was President of the American Society of Mammalogists in 1940-41. He was Director of the Museum of Natural History at the University of Kansas in Lawrence from 1944 until his retirement in 1967.
