This authoritative, full-colour work includes all 216 mammal species found in Canada. Each mammal order and family is described in general detail, followed by more comprehensive descriptions of individual species (including physical identification, ecology and habitat, reproduction, general habits and behavior, scat and tracks).The Introduction places Canadian mammals in their world context, and explores issues relating to taxonomy, distribution, names and measurement.Particularly useful features of the book are the sections explaining to readers how to identify mammals by their remains. (tracks, scratch marks on trees, scat, etc).Each species is illustrated in colour and some show both male and female if there are significant differences. Seasonal pelage changes, colour morphs and major subspecies are also illustrated. Over 220 black and white illustrations include drawings of skulls (three views - dorsal, ventral, and lateral), with mandibles. All of the species that leave tracks have tracks and trackways illustrated to aid in identification. Over 215 range maps show the distribution of each species across Canada and the world.
