Mammals of British Isles Handbook
The Handbook is well established as the classic reference source detailing the biology, ecology and conservation of every mammal occurring in Britain and Ireland.
The 3rd edition, dating to 1991, had long been out of press, until over 100 of the leading mammalogists, mostly members of The Mammal Society, contributed to complete this comprehensive 800-page 4th revision, published in 2008. It presents an authoritative summary of our current knowledge of mammal ecology, biology and conservation issues, with detailed accounts for every species of mammal found in or around the British Isles.
An essential reference work for all who need it: from students, academics and ecologists, to planners, conservationists and naturalists. It benefits from a superb collection of colour plates, especially commissioned from Guy Troughton, excellent colour photographs of mammal behaviour, and new distribution maps and diagrams, all the facts and figures you'd need, and references to further information.
