About this book

This introductory volume provides an overview about the history and current status of European mammals, as well as management strategies. The remaining volumes cover comprehensive overviews of each species’ biology including paleontology, physiology, genetics, reproduction and development, ecology, habitat, diet, mortality and age determination. Their economic significance and management, as well as future challenges for research and management are also addressed. Each chapter includes a distribution map, a photograph of the animal and key literature. This authoritative handbook provides a timely and detailed description of all European mammals and will appeal to academics and students in mammal research, as well as to professionals dealing with mammal management, including control, use and conservation.

About the authors

Klaus Hackländer studied Zoology at PhilippsUniversity Marburg/Lahn and the University of Vienna. He is currently a Full Professor of Wildlife Biology and Wildlife Management at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, where he also coordinates the master’s degree program on Wildlife Ecology and Wildlife Management. Hackländer is a member of numerous mammalogical societies and served as president of the German Society for Mammalian Biology from 2009 to 2016. He was Editor-inChief of the journal Mammal Review from 2009 to 2015 and has coedited two books on the Lagomorpha, his favorite mammalian taxon. Hackländer’s research covers all aspects of mammalian biology, including ecology, behavior, physiology, diseases, and management.

Zachos sis Head of the Mammal Collection at the Natural History Museum in Vienna, Austria, an Affiliated Lecturer at the University of Vienna, and an Affiliated Professor in the Department of Genetics, University of the Free State in Bloemfontein, South Africa. He studied Biology, the History of Science, and Philosophy in Kiel and Jena, Germany, and received his Ph.D. in Zoology in 2005. In 2009, he completed his habilitation (postdoctoral degree) in Zoology and Evolutionary Biology. His main research interests are intraspeci fic biodiversity, phylogeography, population genetics, and conservation of mammals and birds, with a particular focus on red deer and other ungulates. He also has a longstanding interest in species concepts and the species problem as well as other theoretical and philosophical issues in evolutionary biology and systematics. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Mammalian Biology and the Editor of the Mammalia series within the Handbook of Zoology.
