Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This highly anticipated new edition of Mammals of Indiana by John O. Whitaker, Jr., and Russell E. Mumford, first published by Indiana University in 1982, places strong emphasis on ecology with descriptions of Indiana's habitats, climate, and vegetation and detailed species accounts. This well-illustrated book will be a boon to residents of Indiana, many of whom have little acquaintance with the state's 57 species of wild, mostly small, secretive, and nocturnal mammals, and it is sure to please the most avid ecology enthusiast. Summarizing current knowledge about Indiana's mammal species, the volume will also be an important reference for biologists, veterinarians, and wildlife managers throughout the Midwest and beyond.

Synopsis:
