Mammals of Mexico

Mammals of Mexico is the first reference book in English on the more than 500 types of mammal species found in the diverse Mexican habitats, which range from the Sonoran Desert to the Chiapas cloud forests. The authoritative species accounts are written by a Who’s Who of experts compiled by famed mammalogist and conservationist Gerardo Ceballos.

Ten years in the making, Mammals of Mexico covers everything from obscure rodents to whales, bats, primates, and wolves. It is thoroughly illustrated with color photographs and meticulous artistic renderings, as well as range maps for each species. Introductory chapters discuss biogeography, conservation, and evolution. The final section of the book illustrates the skulls, jaws, and tracks of Mexico’s mammals.

This unparalleled collection of scientific information on, and photographs of, Mexican wildlife belongs on the shelf of every mammalogist, in public and academic libraries, and in the hands of anyone curious about Mexico and its wildlife.

Gerardo Ceballos, one of the world’s leading ecologists, is a professor at the Institute of Ecology at National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). He has authored twenty-eight books.

"Mexico is a mega-diverse country, with one of the world’s richest mammal faunas. Gerardo Ceballos is an internationally recognized scientist known for his remarkable breadth and insights. This book—built on the successful foundations of Los Mamíferos Silvestres de México and enlisting the contributions of numerous specialists—showcases both to great effect."

"An outstanding reference...Without a doubt, Mammals of Mexico is the best available book of its kind ever in Mexico."

"Not only the best compendium for information about peccaries in Mexico but for Collared peccaries and White-lipped peccaries (and all the endemic mammal species in Mexico)... A valuable reference about their ecology, natural history, morphology and conservation."
