"This book covers two rather unfamiliar groups of mammals: the lagomorphs (hares, rabbits, pikas) and rodents (squirrels, mice, voles, rats). Rodents comprise the world's largest and most diverse group of mammals. British Columbia is home to 45 species, ranging in size from the tiny Western Harvest Mouse to the bulky Beaver and in abundance from the ubiquitous Deer Mouse to the rare and endangered Vancouver Island Marmot. Just 7 species of lagomorphs inhabit the province: 5 rabbits and hares, and 2 pikas. In Rodents and Lagomorophs of British Columbia, David Nagorsen provides the latest information on these mammals. He discusses their general biology, including diet, behaviour, adaptations and relations with humans. Illustrated keys to help identify all 52 species in the province. Each species description includes and illustrations and comparisons with other species, as well as natural history, range (with distribution map), taxonomy and conservation status."--Excerpt from publisher description.
