      In his book The Biology of Small Mammals, Merritt undertakes the formidable task of compiling, summarizing, and synthesizing our knowledge of small mammals, more specifically, the “adaptations that enhance survival in many different environments.” The book is divided into 4 major sections: an Introduction, followed by Part One “Modes of Feeding,” Part Two “Environmental . This volume gives a current overview of theoretical considerations and empirical findings of activity patterns in small mammals, a group in which the energetic and ecological constraints are particularly severe and the diversity of activity patterns is particularly high.

      Small Mammal Conservation: The Genus Martes as Case Study Mohammed Ashraf Mega vertebrates from mammalian guild often receive wholesale package of conservation attention both from socio-political and ecological spectrum. This is largely due to the human perspective based on our ecological and conservation prejudice stem from 'ramshackle and ill-conceived' mindset that large . From their largely descriptive beginnings about a half century ago, studies on the ecology of small mammals have mushroomed in number, scope, content and complexity.

51) Hardcover – January 1, Cited by: Like all branches of science, small mammal ecology has been subject to a series of fashionable approaches, one following another as tech­ nology penetrates previously impregnable regions.

Doubtless the future development of our science will be punctuated by wave upon wave of new endeavour in whole fields that are perhaps even yet unidentified. An ecological study on species composition, relative abundance and habitat association of small mammals and the impact of human interference on their abundance and diversity was carried out in Nechisar National Park during August, to April, A total of 25 species of small mammals were recorded from the study : Sintayehu Workeneh Dejene.

About this book Small mammals can be regarded as excellent subjects to test suppositions about population growth migration and reproduction, and, in particular, on how the complex physical structure of the environment affects the ecology of populations and communities.

Choice Utilizing fossil records and extant small mammals, the author provides an interesting look into their physical make up and way of life. Wildlife Activist Where Dr. Merritt's book shines and separates itself from other mammalogy books is when he adds the details, examples, and colorful commentary allowing readers to share his.

Merritt outlines this book directly from his more general textbook on mammals, which limits his discussion of topics applicable to the study of small mammals specifically.

Small mammals (Rodents and Insectivores) constitute % of total mammal species found in India. In spite of their abundance, this largest group among mammals has received little attention of ecologists.

This book is an endeavour to cover small mammals of the whole state. In other words, these small mammal studies can help formulate landscape ecological principles. This book summarizes a great deal of experimental work on the spatial ecology of small mammals.

The field has entered an exciting stage with several new techniques (such as GIS and systems modeling) becoming available.

About this book. The ability of small mammals to exploit environmental resources, based upon a rapid adaptation to short-term changes in population and/or the environment, as well as to a variety of local conditions, implies a strong impact upon natural resources.
