Gzimek’s Animal Life Encyclopedia is an internationally prominent scientific reference compilation, first published in German in the late 1960s, under the editorship of zoologist Bernhard Grzimek (1909-1987). In a cooperative effort between Gale and the American Zoo and Aquarium Association, the series is being completely revised and updated for the first time in over 30 years. Gale is expanding the series from 13 to 17 volumes, commissioning new color images, and updating the information while also making the set easier to use. The order of revisions is: Vol 8–11: Birds I–IV Vol 6: Amphibians Vol 7: Reptiles Vol 4–5: Fishes I–II Vol 12–16: Mammals I–V Vol 1: Lower Metazoans and Lesser Deuterostomes Vol 2: Protostomes Vol 3: Insects Vol 17: Cumulative Index Organized by taxonomy The overall structure of this reference work is based on the classification of animals into naturally related groups, a discipline known as taxonomy—the science through which various organisms are discovered, identified, described, named, classified, and catalogued. Starting with the simplest life forms, the lower metazoans and lesser deuterostomes, in volume 1, the series progresses through the more complex animal classes, culminating with the mammals in volumes 12–16. Volume 17 is a stand-alone cumulative index. Organization of chapters within each volume reinforces the taxonomic hierarchy. In the case of the Mammals volumes, introductory chapters describe general characteristics of all organisms in these groups, followed by taxonomic chapters dedicated to Order, Family, or Subfamily. Species accounts appear at the end of the Family and Subfamily chapters To help the reader grasp the scientific arrangement, each type of chapter has a distinctive color and symbol: ● =Order Chapter (blue background) ●▲ =Monotypic Order Chapter (green background) ▲ =Family Chapter (yellow background) =Subfamily Chapter (yellow background) Introductory chapters have a loose structure, reminiscent of the first edition. While not strictly formatted, Order chapters are carefully structured to cover basic information about member families. Monotypic orders, comprised of a single family, utilize family chapter organization. Family and subfamily chapters are most tightly structured, following a prescribed format of standard rubrics that make information easy to find and understand. Family chapters typically include: Thumbnail introduction Common name Scientific name Class Order Suborder Family Thumbnail description Size Number of genera, species Habitat Conservation status Main essay Evolution and systematics Physical characteristics Distribution Habitat Behavior Feeding ecology and diet Reproductive biology Conservation status Significance to humans Species accounts Common name Scientific name Subfamily Taxonomy Other common names Physical characteristics Distribution Habitat Behavior xii Grzimek’s Animal Life Encyclopedia • • • • • How to use this book Feeding ecology and diet Reproductive biology Conservation status Significance to humans Resources Books Periodicals Organizations Other Color graphics enhance understanding Grzimek’s features approximately 3,000 color photos, including approximately 1,560 in five Mammals volumes; 3,500 total color maps, including nearly 550 in the Mammals volumes; and approximately 5,500 total color illustrations, including approximately 930 in the Mammals volumes. Each featured species of animal is accompanied by both a distribution map and an illustration. All maps in Grzimek’s were created specifically for the project by XNR Productions. Distribution information was provided by expert contributors and, if necessary, further researched at the University of Michigan Zoological Museum library. Maps are intended to show broad distribution, not definitive ranges. All the color illustrations in Grzimek’s were created specifically for the project by Michigan Science Art. Expert contributors recommended the species to be illustrated and provided feedback to the artists, who supplemented this information with authoritative references and animal skins from University of Michgan Zoological Museum library. In addition to species illustrations, Grzimek’s features conceptual drawings that illustrate characteristic traits and behaviors. About the contributors The essays were written by scientists, professors, and other professionals. Grzimek’s subject advisors reviewed the completed essays to insure consistency and accuracy. Standards employed In preparing these volumes, the editors adopted a conservative approach to taxonomy, relying on Wilson and Reeder’s Mammal Species of the World: a Taxonomic and Geographic Reference (1993) as a guide. Systematics is a dynamic discipline in that new species are being discovered continuously, and new techniques (e.g., DNA sequencing) frequently result in changes in the hypothesized evolutionary relationships among various organisms. Consequently, controversy often exists regarding classification of a particular animal or group of animals; such differences are mentioned in the text. Grzimek’s has been designed with ready reference in mind and the editors have standardized information wherever feasible. For Conservation status, Grzimek’s follows the IUCN Red List system, developed by its Species Survival Commission. The Red List provides the world’s most comprehensive inventory of the global conservation status of plants and animals. Using a set of criteria to evaluate extinction risk, the IUCN recognizes the following categories: Extinct, Extinct in the Wild, Critically Endangered, Endangered, Vulnerable, Conservation Dependent, Near Threatened, Least Concern, and Data Deficient.

Mammals of Mexico is the first reference book in English on the more than 500 types of mammal species found in the diverse Mexican habitats, which range from the Sonoran Desert to the Chiapas cloud forests. The authoritative species accounts are written by a Who’s Who of experts compiled by famed mammalogist and conservationist Gerardo Ceballos. Ten years in the making, Mammals of Mexico covers everything from obscure rodents to whales, bats, primates, and wolves. It is thoroughly illustrated with color photographs and meticulous artistic renderings, as well as range maps for each species. Introductory chapters discuss biogeography, conservation, and evolution. The final section of the book illustrates the skulls, jaws, and tracks of Mexico’s mammals.
