The Mammals of the Southern African Sub-region
Author: Skinner, J.D.;Chimimba, Christian T.;Smithers, R.H.N.
Probably as a consequence of their large size and often violent interactions with man, the mammals of the southern Africa have been well studied over the last 150 years. The first major synthesis of the biology of southern African mammals was undertaken by Austin Roberts and resulted in the publication in 1951 of The Mammals of South Africa. This volume was completely revised and updated by Reay Smithers, working under the auspices of the Mammal Research Institute at the University of Pretoria, and the first edition of The Mammals of the Southern Africa Subregion was published in 1984. Since then there have been substantial changes to the taxonomic framework which is used to group and understand the relationships between mammals species, and significant advances to our understanding of the biology of many of the species. To accommodate these advances, the second edition, revised in part by Reay Smithers and completed by John Skinner after the death of the original author, was published in 1990. This third edition represents a comprehensive synthesis of the taxonomy and biology of all 354 mammal species occurring naturally in Africa south of the Cunene and Zambezi Rivers, and the subregionís coastal waters.
