KIRKUS REVIEW

Unlike most compendia on mammals, Palmer's discusses domesticated and semi-domesticated varieties. It is written on several levels, including information for the average person, the businessman on vacation, and the zoologists, both junior and senior. Additional to the usual data on classification, traits, and habitats are interesting ecological, behavioral, and sensory attributes. Genetic and generic origins, facts about body temperature, habits, morphology are told always with a considered interest in that animal's relationship to man.
