‘The Mammals of Sri Lanka’ is the first comprehensive treatment of the subject in eighty years. It encapsulates the state of the art of mammalogy in Sri Lanka, summarizing not only the available body of knowledge but hinting also at research now in progress and directions for future inquiry. Richly illustrated, it carries a coloured portrait of almost every terrestrial and marine mammals that occur in and around Sri Lanka. The text is accompanied by distribution maps for all the terrestrial mammals, dive sequences for whales, and identification characters such as footprints and feces of selected species. A Bibliography containing over 500 references is also included. The Coffee Table publication is with Navy blue, gold embossed Hard Cover and contain 1012 pages all in four colours.

The book delivers a timely reminder to wildlife enthusiasts that our island contains some 120 more mammal species than the leopards and elephants that garner almost everyone’s attention, each of them every bit as worthy of our interest whether as scientists or lovers of wilderness.
