descripción

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.
