This book is a fully revised and updated second edition of the only comprehensive guide to the mammals of South-east Asia, one of the world's richest regions in terms of mammal diversity, where species new to science are still being described regularly, though there is increasing pressure on all of its wild mammal populations. From large mammals such as the elephant, big cats, dolphins and whales through bears, monkeys and badgers to bats, civets, rats and shrews, more than 550 species are described in detail, including key identification characteristics, habitat, behaviour, distribution and status, accompanied by line drawings of footprints and details of anatomy, or other aspects of identification. Beautiful colour plates depict nearly all species and their variations, while accompanying range maps provide up-to-date information on distribution. This field guide is essential for any naturalist or traveller visiting this special corner of Asia.

This bibliography was compiled in order to provide zoologists, medical and paramedical investigators, and others with a single source of references for the land mammals of Southeast Asia. The task was originally undertaken in conjunction with an investigation of mammal-borne anthropozoonoses in Southeast Asia. The countries primarily covered by this work are Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, North and South Vietnam, the Republic of the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Hainan Island. Major works concerning mammals of India and southern China have also been included because of close faunal relationships and because authors who worked in India (and what is now Bangladesh) have frequently included Burma as a part of their study area. Papers presenting the results of laboratory experiments with captive animals are not included, although papers presenting physiological, anatomical, and parasitological data applicable to the natural state of the species are included.

Fossil Mammals of Asia, edited by and with contributions from world-renowned scholars, is the first major work devoted to the late Cenozoic (Neogene) mammalian biostratigraphy and geochronology of Asia. This volume employs cutting-edge biostratigraphic and geochemical dating methods to map the emergence of mammals across the continent. Written by specialists working in a variety of Asian regions, it uses data from many basins with spectacular fossil records to establish a groundbreaking geochronological framework for the evolution of land mammals. Asia's violent tectonic history has resulted in some of the world's most varied topography, and its high mountain ranges and intense monsoon climates have spawned widely diverse environments over time. These geologic conditions profoundly influenced the evolution of Asian mammals and their migration into Europe, Africa, and North America. Focusing on amazing new fossil finds that have redefined Asia's role in mammalian evolution, this volume synthesizes information from a range of field studies on Asian mammals and biostratigraphy, helping to trace the histories and movements of extinct and extant mammals from various major groups and all northern continents, and providing geologists with a richer understanding of a variety of Asian terrains.

"...DESERVES A PLACE IN REFERENCE COLLECTIONS."--CHOICE. "..IT ENABLES SPECIALISTS OF ONE COUNTRY OR SUBJECT TO IDENTIFY RAPIDLY REFERENCE SOURCES ON COUNTRIES & SUBJECT AREAS WITHIN THE REGION WITH WHICH THEY MAY BE LESS FAMILIAR...IT WILL FACILITATE THE TASK OF COMPARATIVE RESEARCH WHILE HARD-PRESSED REFERENCE LIBRARIANS WILL NO DOUBT FIND IT AN INVALUABLE SOURCE OF FIRST RESORT."--ROYAL ASIATIC SOCIETY, VOLUME 4. This guide evaluates the widely scattered fund of material available in South-East Asia in such areas as politics, religion, society, history language, geography, economics & development. Even the simple listings of reference sources within this guide bring to light much indispensable & fascinating information; information that risks being over-looked because of its date or origin, or that is inaccessible in libraries because of cataloging problems. This guide analyses the contents of books & non-reference materials from the practical viewpoint of today's library. (REGIONAL REFERENCE GUIDES, 2)
