The Mammals of India: A Systematic & Cartographic Review

 
Anwaruddin Choudhury (Photography) Colin Groves (Foroward) Anwaruddin Choudhury (Author)
Synopsis

India has more than 400 species of mammals. It is the only country in the world to have the Tiger and the Lion. The presence of such a diverse mammalian species in a relatively small area of the globe is significant (c. 8.6% of the total mammalian species in 2.4% of the world’s land area).

In this new book, which has been launched today entitled, "The Mammals of India: a systematic & cartographic review" by Dr Anwaruddin Choudhury is a major definitive work on the mammals of India. The range of all the species have been mapped in full colour for the first time. The style of presentation of range maps is different from all the other mammal books published so far in India except The Mammals of NE India which was published in 2013 and authored by him. It is a scientific work but non-technical readers can also follow it without much problem. The text is supported by some photographs, maps and a few illustrations, followed by exhaustive list of references.

Colin Groves

Prof. Colin Groves, the famous Australian scientist while penning down the foreword of this book has stated that "it is extraordinary that there has been no dedicated taxonomic coverage of the mammals of India for over half a century (since Ellerman & Morrison Scott’s 1951 Checklist of Palaearctic and Indian Mammals). An enormous amount of taxonomic work has gone on since then, but nowhere has it been gathered together in one place. There have been a number of general books on the mammals of India; useful and interesting though most of them are, they have not been taxonomic works, and have tended to concentrate on the larger, more visible mammals, giving little space to the smaller ones, notably insectivores, bats and rodents."
