Product description


Professional naturalists will find [these volumes] invaluable as a handy reference, and amateurs—at least those citizens alive to their earthly environment—should delight in finding so much fascinating information made so available and palatable.


Walker has made available a mine of information, for the specialist as well as for the casually interested.

(New York Times)

Speaking as a reader who is mildly addicted to 'standard works of reference,' I must say that I find it a very welcome addition to my library, and suspect that it will become my regular first port of call when trying to answer any mammalogical question.

(International Zoo News)

Unlike many academic reference works, all editions [Walker's Mammals], the new one included, are as accessible to amateurs as to professionals.... For wildlife enthusiasts, this set is an indispensable resource. After being exposed to this kind of thorough, detailed information saturation, many readers may find it hard to go back to a plain old encyclopedia for their animal questions.

(Bloomsbury Review)

Anyone seeking information and understanding of this large group of mammals will need to read this book.

(David Bardack American Reference Books Annual 2006-01-00)

I recommend this text as a fascinating and handy ready reference guide for amateur and professional naturalists, as well as any member of the general science audience.

(Robert R. J. Grispino Science Books and Films 2006-01-00)

Gives a state of the art introduction to the marsupials.

(P. Langer, Giessen Mammalian Biology 2008-01-00)
