Mammals of Indiana A Field Guide by John O., Jr. Whitaker

This pocket-sized field guide to native Indiana mammals offers color photos, skull close-ups, and range maps, along with descriptions and clues to finding and identifying all mammals indigenous to the area-and even a few that are not, but can now be found in the state. In addition to detailing Indiana's wild, mostly small, secretive, and nocturnal mammals, John O. Whitaker, Jr., describes the region's habitats, climate, and vegetation. Mammals of Indiana: A Field Guide precisely identifies the creatures you are likely to encounter while hiking a trail, camping in a state park, or picnicking in your own backyard. Whether you are a biologist, veterinarian, wildlife manager, or simply a nature enthusiast, this guide is certain to be a welcome companion during your next outdoor adventure.


Whitaker has produced a handsome, handy field guide for these midwestern mammals. * Choice *
