Using the most recent advances in molecular biology and in wildlife ecology and management, the authors include the most current information about the scientific nomenclature, taxonomy, and identification of species, while also covering significant advances in natural history and conservation.

The Mammals of Texas has been the standard reference since the first edition was authored by William B. Davis in 1947. Revised several times over the succeeding decades, it remains the most authoritative source of information on the mammalian wildlife of Texas.

This new edition has been thoroughly updated and expanded from the previous one in 1994. Of particular importance are the changes it records in species status and distribution. New materials in this edition include lists of subspecies, a brief description of the conservation status of each species, and an expanded introductory section that discusses historical changes in Texas mammals and the history of mammalogy in Texas. The book also contains a thorough overview of the mammals of Texas, abundant photographs and drawings, distribution maps, physical descriptions, and life histories for 184 species of mammals.

Well, it's the classic. Solid info I trust. Good descriptions, ranges, habitats, reproduction, and other important facts on the mammals of Texas. A page or two per species. Can be used for identification and classroom work, but not a textbook or a field guide. Not in color, but also not too overwhelming for the interested amateur. I use it for all my nature classes on mammals when teaching adult volunteers at our local nature center in Houston.

On the whole the books was very worthwhile. It covers every species and subspecies of mammal found in the state of Texas, including marine mammals. The information seemed mostly sound, but there were a few inconsistencies and mistakes presented. The inconsistencies mostly involved the way range maps were presented. In some cases, in species that have undergone range contraction, range maps presented both a historical range and a current range. In other cases they do not (as for black bears).
There were also some odd range maps; for instance, the range map for the armadillo shows them inhabiting the whole panhandle, but without any confirmed county sightings recorded for the whole western edge of the panhandle and a good portion of the northen panhandle; about 14 continuous counties were listed as part of it's range without a single sighting in any of them. Their absence from this range would make sense, as the soil is very hard with a caliche base, and there are not a lot of riparian habitats which help the spread of armadillos. I can't swear for sure that they're not here, but I'd like to know why thy listed that part of texas as within the range of the armadillo without any sightings.

There is also a case where they list one species of skunk (the hooded I think) as the largest skunk, giving it's maximum weight as 4.5kg, but then list the striped skunk as reaching up to 8kg. One of those statements has to be false...

Then, they record the maximum weight of the mountain lion as 220 kg! That would be just shy of 500 lbs, or the size of a tiger. They can reach up to about 220 pounds though--I think a copy editor probably messed up there.

On the whole though, a good book--there were some errors but the bulk of the information seems sound was the authors were very thorough, covering reproduction, diets, dental formulas...essentially the basics of the animal's life history in each description.

This book is a classic reference -- it's been around for a long time, and will probably continue to be around for quite some time to come. I all but slept with it under my pillow during my college days, and now, decades later, I still frequently refer to it. Every subspecies of every wild mammal found in the Lone Star State, from mice to buffalo, is covered here in painstaking detail: feeding and breeding habits, distribution (including maps), population status, very good photographs, and relationship to human society (game animal, crop pest, etc.) is all here. Due to the size and geographic location of Texas, the animals covered in this book range over many habitats from desert to woodlands to subtropical seas -- making it a useful reference tool for zoological study in almost any area of the United States.
