Welcome to the Cumulative Index for the Mammalian Species.

Mammalian Species is published, on line, regularly by the American Society of Mammalogists with 20-30 new accounts issued each year.  Each account summarizes the current understanding of the biology of a single species, including systematics, distribution, fossil history, genetics, anatomy, physiology, behavior, ecology, and conservation.  The accounts vary from 2 to14 pages. The accounts are provided to members of the American Society of Mammalogists as a benefit of membership.

Institutional subscriptions to the series are available.  For more information please email Allen Press [].
