"The content makes for a book of such a range of mammal study methods it is difficult to think all that can be in just 179 pages."

"A student contemplating mammalian field research would be well-served utilizing this lab manual."

"[Mammalogy Techniques Lab Manual] will surely inspire a new generation of mammalogists... A strength of the book is that it is self-contained. Supplementary materials specific to this book, public online resources, and smart practical suggestions enable the reader to perform most of the exercises from anywhere in the world... [Mammalogy Techniques Lab Manual] will be a great addition for introductory courses... Instructors should ask their libraries to purchase some copies. This book will lead new generations of students to say "When I grow up I want to be a mammalogist!""

"Jim Ryan is a top-notch teacher who cares about what students need and want in a lab manual. I commend his attention to detail and think this book will make a fine addition to the field."

"Ryan’s manual provides a series of well-designed exercises covering key themes in mammal biology and reinforcing the wonders of field biology. With field collection of data where possible and analyses in R, this fills a long-standing resource gap and provides a self-standing foundation for semester-length courses. A welcome addition to any mammalogist’s bookshelf!"

"Ryan's Mammalogy Techniques Lab Manual is an outstanding resource for anyone teaching mammalogy, field mammalogy, or any field- or lab-based course. Students completing the exercises in this manual will become well-versed in a variety of techniques used not only by mammalogists, but by many others conducting research in the field. I highly recommend this teaching tool!"

"In recent decades, field experiences have declined in universities and colleges across North America. James M. Ryan advocates reversing that trend in his Mammalogy Techniques Lab Manual with excellent chapters on field notes and their importance, R, and traditional specimen based mammalogy."

"This book can be recommended to anyone working (or those who wish to work) with mammals in the field and is a must have for students of mammalogy (including researchers) as well as any biology department covering mammalogy."
