Mammals of Africa (MoA) is a series of six volumes which describes, in detail, every currently recognized species of African land mammal. This is the first time that such extensive coverage has ever been attempted, and the volumes incorporate the very latest information and detailed discussion of the morphology, distribution, biology and evolution (including reference to fossil and molecular data) of Africa's mammals. With 1,160 species and 16 orders, Africa has the greatest diversity and abundance of mammals in the world. The reasons for this and the mechanisms behind their evolution are given special attention in the series.Each volume follows the same format, with detailed profiles of every species and higher taxa. The series includes some 660 colour illustrations by Jonathan Kingdon and his many drawings highlight details of morphology and behaviour of the species concerned. Diagrams, schematic details and line drawings of skulls and jaws are by Jonathan Kingdon and Meredith Happold. Every species also includes a detailed distribution map. Extensive references alert readers to more detailed information.Volume I: Introductory Chapters and Afrotheria (352 pages)Volume II: Primates (560 pages)Volume III: Rodents, Hares and Rabbits (784 pages)Volume IV: Hedgehogs, Shrews and Bats (800 pages)Volume V: Carnivores, Pangolins, Equids and Rhinoceroses (560 pages)Volume VI: Hippopotamuses, Pigs, Deer, Giraffe and Bovids (704 pages)
