William B. Davis and David J. Schmidly bring together over seventy years of experience in the study of Texas mammals. A completely revised and updated version of Davis' classic text, which was first published in 1947, The Mammals of Texas is a perennial favorite, going through four reprints and revisions during the past forty-seven years. A basic reference for the wildlife enthusiast, the book contains information on the distribution, physical characteristics, and life histories of 181 species of Texas mammals. Included are photographs, a comprehensive set of distribution maps, and identification keys to the orders and species of mammals found in Texas.
