Les Petits Mammifères de Madagascar

Madagascar, with its unique and highly endemic flora and fauna, is a world conservation priority, but until now, no detailed synthesis has been available for the small mammals of the island. This pocket-sized book, written in non-technical French and beautifully illustrated throughout, fills that gap with both a general introduction to Malagasy small mammals and detailed entries for fifty-nine endemic species, many only recently described by science. Small mammals covered include Madagascar’s endemic rodent species—the mice and rats of the greatly diversified subfamily Nesomyinae, which have evolved to fill a variety of ecological niches—as well as the snouted, insectivore-like mammals of the family Tenrecidae.
