Squirrels of the World

Richard Thorrington , John L Koprowski, Michael A Steele & James F Whatton

Written by scientists with more than 100 years of collective experience studying these popular mammals, is the first comprehensive examination of all 285 species of squirrels worldwide. The authors reveal virtually every detail of the family Sciuridae, which includes ground squirrels, tree squirrels, flying squirrels, prairie dogs, and chipmunks. Each species, from the familiar Gray Squirrel of American backyards to the exotic and endangered Woolly Flying Squirrel of Pakistan, is described in a detailed account that includes distinguishing characteristics, ecology, natural history, conservation status, and current threats to its existence.

This book includes stunning colour photos that document rare and unusual squirrels as well as common varieties; evolution, morphology, ecology, and conservation status; colourful range maps marking species distribution; images of the skull of each genus of squirrel; and extensive references. 459 pages.
