This will be a welcome addition to anyone's field guide collection and will be especially useful for Neotropical mammalogists. This three volume set with each volume covering a different group of countries appears to be the definitive work on mammals in the region. Size: Large 8vo 9 to 11 inches.

From United Kingdom to U. All species accounts retained from the first edition have been updated to include the most recent research. The Good: This is the most comprehensive guide to rainforest mammals that I have found. It has a lot of information on where to find many of the species in Central America that I have yet to put to the test. From United Kingdom to U.
About this Item: Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1997, 1997. Here, we develop a method to estimate the area effectively monitored by cameras, which is one of the most important codeterminants of detection rate. More important, they have appreciated its clear and concise accounts of the mammals of this broad region. All profits to Amnesty International. A comparative study of their diet, plus more behavioral data from sympatric and allopatric situations are needed to better understand the way in which deer may partition resources.
Customer service is our top priority. The four habitats showed differences in vegetation structure and plant composition canopy height and cover, horizontal visibility, and fruit resources as well as frequency of signs for each brocket deer species. The descriptions are very good and the natural history is good. The sciurids' recordings are mostly restricted to alarm calls—those most frequently heard in the field. Mammalia 69 2 : 169-183.
Following this is the list of species recorded. Minor marks and wear to book. . Size: Large 8vo 9 to 11 inches. Keys to the Families and Genera of Rainforest Mammals -- App.

Twenty-nine beautiful color plates illustrate more than 220 species including significant color variants between males and females or adults and young.
However, there are interspecific differences in the shape of these relationships. This compact disc set will be useful to anyone conducting field research in the Neotropics. Covers and page block slightly curved. These differences result from behavioral divergences and foraging strategies in addition to macrohabitat selection.
