by

Publisher: American Committee for Wild Life Protection

Number of pages: 878

Description:
The present work had its origin in a strongly felt need for definite information on the mammals that have become extinct during the Christian Era, on those that are now threatened with the same fate, on the factors contributing to the progressive depletion of the world's mammalian faunas, and on the measures that have been hitherto or may be hereafter undertaken for their preservation. It consists to a large extent of an inventory of vanishing resources, as an essential step in their conservation.
