By William B. Davis and David J. Schmidly

In The Mammals of Texas, Drs. William B. Davis and David J. Schmidly bring together over 70 years of experience in the study of Texas mammals. A completely revised and updated version of William B. Davis's 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 47 years. A basic reference for the wildlife enthusiast, the book contains information on the distribution, physical characteristics and life histories of the 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. Also included is a brief introduction to the study of mammals.

This online edition of The Mammals of Texas incorporates the complete text and graphics content of the 1994 revision published by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
