On 1 April the first volume of a new 8 volume set of a Handbook of the Mammals of the World is released. The first volume covers the carnivores -with the remaining volumes coming annually. It looks like it should be excellent. It isn’t cheap but the best price I have seen is at NHBS.Co.UK where the first volume can be pre-ordered, discounted from 135 to 105 British pounds if you order before end March. If you find it cheaper then let me know.
