Marine mammals include some of the most fascinating animals on Earth. Large, majestic whales and stunning, playful dolphins have provided mysterious companionship to humans at sea for hundreds of years. These magical creatures, along with their equally fascinating relatives, the seals and sea lions, have developed a completely different set of adaptations from their terrestrial ancestors and relatives. Volume 4 of the HMW series provides complete accounts of all species and families in these important groups. Lavishly illustrate with colour photographs showing different behaviours of all or them, the text contains the latest up-to-date information on all families of sea mammals. Contents: Familia Trichechidae, Thomas O'Shea. Familia Dugongidae, Helene Marsh. Familia Phocidae, Brent Stewart. Familia Otariidae, Marc Webber. Familia Odobenidae, Brent Stewart. Familia Platanistidae, Gill Braulik. Familia Lipotidae, Brian Smith. Familia Ziphiidae, Colin MacLeod. Familia Iniidae, Vera da Silva. Familia Pontoporiidae, Eduardo Secchi.

Platypus, Echidnas, Opossums, Kangaroos, Koalas, Wallabies, and Wombats – Monotremes and marsupials include a host of animals that have intrigued mammal fanciers for centuries. Monotremes are a very distinctive ancient group of mammals with only a handful of extant species in Australia and New Guinea and marsupials, with roots in South America, likely reached Australia via Antarctica some 50 million years ago. With relatives remaining in America, Marsupials have adapted to an amazing diversity of lifestyles and habitats. Volume 5 of HMW provides complete coverage of these two important groups of mammals. Lavishly illustrated with color photographs showing different behaviors of all of them, the text contains the latest up-to-date information on all families of Monotremes and Marsupials, both Australasian and American. Find out more about the contents of Volume 5 by reading the introduction.This volume also includes a Special Chapter on Extinct Marsupials, by Kristofer Helgen.Families covered in this volume are: Family Tachyglossidae (Echidnas). Family Ornithorhynchidae (Platypus). Family Didelphidae (Opossums). Family Caenolestidae (Shrew Opossums). Family Microbiotheriidae (Monito del Monte). Family Notoryctidae (Marsupial Moles).

Rats and mice and their relatives in the order Rodentia make up almost half of the species of mammals. Because of this, we polled our readers and the overwhelming positive response was to produce two volumes treating Rodents. Volume 6 will include all of the families of rodents other than Cricetidae and Muridae, plus the order Lagomorpha, which includes rabbits and pikas. This radiation includes some 35 families, which have spread around the globe, occupying every continent except Antarctica, and countless islands in all major oceans. As usual, the text includes up-to-date information on every species, and each species is illustrated. Each family account includes color photographs documenting a variety of behaviors of these diverse and interesting mammals. This volume also includes a Special Chapter: An overview of rodents, including chapters on morphology, taxonomy, and evolutionary history; why rodents are studied; and tools for studying them. Lagomorphs and Rodents will be divided into two volumes, in order to include maximum information and illustrations, as in previous HMW volumes: Volume 6: Lagomorphs and Rodents I and Volume 7: Rodents II. Families covered in Volume 6: I) ORDER LAGOMORPHA: 2 families, 11 genera, 92 species. II) ORDER RODENTIA: Suborder Castorimorpha: 3 families, 13 genera, 109 species; Suborder Anomaluromorpha: 2 families, 4 genera, 9 species; Suborder Hystricomorpha: 17 families, 71 genera, 274 species; Suborder Sciuromorpha: 3 families, 69 genera, 314 species.

Rodents include species that have colonized almost every available habitat on earth, and others that have adapted to human beings and followed them as they also spread across the globe. Volume 7 completes the order Rodentia—which represents arguably the most important order of mammals, both in terms of number of species, and in geographic distribution—covering the families contained in the suborder Myomorpha, including the two largest families, Cricetidae and Muridae. This volume also includes a Special Chapter: Priorities for Conserving the World’s Rodents by Thomas Lacher Jr., Richard Young, Samuel Turvey, Rosalind Kennerley & Nicolette Roach.

Lagomorphs and Rodents are divided into two volumes, in order to include maximum information and illustrations, as in previous HMW volumes: Volume 6: Lagomorphs and Rodents I and Volume 7: Rodents II

The Handbook of Mammals of the World (HMW) is an unprecedented, lavishly illustrated reference work for the Class Mammalia. This series of 9 large-format volumes describes and illustrates every currently recognized mammal species, along with a detailed overview of each mammalian Family. It provides up-to-date information on the evolutionary relationships, natural history, ecology, and current conservation status for all mammals. Every species is illustrated, and each Family Chapter contains beautiful color photographs of mammals in action. HMW provides comprehensive worldwide coverage by involving an international group of expert authors, each of whom is a leading authority on their respective groups of mammals.

This set includes all volumes (1 to 9) of the Handbook of the Mammals of the World series.

The Handbook of Mammals of the World (HMW) is an unprecedented, lavishly illustrated reference work for the Class Mammalia. This series of 9 large-format volumes describes and illustrates every currently recognized mammal species, along with a detailed overview of each mammalian Family. It provides up-to-date information on the evolutionary relationships, natural history, ecology, and current conservation status for all mammals. Every species is illustrated, and each Family Chapter contains beautiful color photographs of mammals in action. HMW provides comprehensive worldwide coverage by involving an international group of expert authors, each of whom is a leading authority on their respective groups of mammals.

An important driving force behind HMW is to support the conservation of mammals and their habitats, a task made easier through the involvement of Conservation International and IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature). A major aim of HMW is to illustrate the extraordinary diversity of mammals and to promote poorly known species, especially those in South America, Africa, and Asia, in the hope that this will inspire additional studies. The IUCN Red Data Books play an important role in conservation planning worldwide and highlight how little we know about the status of many mammalian species. An important contribution of HMW is to examine the status of every one of the world’s mammal species, describing the threats and outlining possible conservation measures.

HMW has followed traditionally accepted classifications, based on Mammal Species of the World (Wilson and Reeder, 2005). However, HMW has made several improvements. The views of the authors, all of whom are acknowledged authorities on their respective groups, have been incorporated into each volume. Each volume considers the description of new species and ongoing systematic revisions, which continue to add to our knowledge of the phylogenetic relationships within Mammalia. The section on Systematics within each Family Chapter reviews the on-going taxonomic work and recent research using new molecular techniques, which have revolutionized our ability to analyze evolutionary relationships.

Each chapter in every volume is dedicated to a Famlly of mammals. The Family Text gives a general overview of each family and includes numerous color photographs illustrating members of the family in action. This is followed by the individual Species Accounts, which are concise summaries of the known information from the primary literature. Both sections include an extensive bibliography.

In general, each volume presents the taxa in phylogenetic sequence, which reflects the evolutionary relationships as we currently understand them. The Family Texts are also amply illustrated with color photographs that not only depict as many species as possible, but also illustrate aspects of behavior or ecology that are mentioned in the text. Each Family Chapter includes a summary box providing a quick reference to the basic details of the family. Then, more detailed sections discuss Systematics, Morphological Aspects, Habitat, General Habits, Communication, Food and Feeding, Breeding, Movements, Home range, Social Organization, Relationship with Humans, Status and Conservation, and a General Bibliography listing the references used to compose the text.

There is a Species Account for each currently recognized species of mammal. All extant species are illustrated in the Plates, which show details of the pelage and general morphology. Each Species Account begins with the English Vernacular Name followed by the Scientific Name. Each species name is also given in French, German, and Spanish. Each Species Account summarizes everything known about Taxonomy, Subspecies and Distribution (with a distribution map), Descriptive Notes, Habitat, Food and Feeding, Activity Patterns, Movements, Home Range, Social Organization, Status and Conservation, and a Bibliography.

This set includes all volumes (1 to 9) of the Handbook of the Mammals of the World series, the first work that illustrates and deals in detail with all of the mammals of the world.

En el octavo libro de su Historia natural, Plinio el viejo escribió la descripción más extensa y sistemática de los elefantes. Aristóteles, Plutarco y Marco Polo, entre otros, admiraban su inteligencia y observaron que, además de ser sensible a los placeres del amor y la gloria, el animal posee nociones de honestidad, prudencia y equidad. En este trabajo exhaustivo, José Emilio Burucúa y Nicolás Kwiatkowski recorren pinturas, bestiarios medievales y los más diversos textos del arte, la religión, la ciencia y la mitología para entender que, en última instancia, un mundo sin elefantes sería inadmisible: su desaparición como especie significaría un atentado contra la belleza y la majestad de la naturaleza.

Lawrence Anthony dedicó su vida a la conservación de los animales, la protección de especies en peligro de extinción en el mundo. Un día se le pidió aceptar a una manada de elefantes salvajes «problemáticos». Su sentido común le aconsejaba negarse, pero era la última oportunidad de supervivencia de la manada: los matarían si no se encargaba de ellos. Con el fin de salvar sus vidas, les acogió. En los años siguientes se convirtieron en su familia, ganándose su confianza, llegando a estar profundamente unidos e incluso aprendió cómo se comunican entre sí (con profundos y retumbantes «susurros»)...

Jane Goodall confió en la intuición, en la paciencia y en todo lo aprendido de sus observaciones de campo para tambalear los cimientos de la ciencia. "Ahora tendremos que redefinir lo que es una herramienta, lo que es el hombre o aceptar que los chimpancés son humanos", afirmó su mentor Louis Leakey. Gracias a sus descubrimientos, las personas nos vimos ante un espejo nuevo. Tras sesenta años estudiando a los primates, Goodall descubrió que su don era la palabra y que podía utilizarla en convencernos de la necesidad de luchar por los ecosistemas del planeta. Desde que dejó África, viaja 300 días al año para difundir mensajes de amor a la naturaleza Pionera en el estudio de los chimpancés
