Críticas:

"... a very much anticipated work indeed for naturalists interested in [island biogeography]."

(The Well-Read Naturalist)

"A must have for those with an interest in the mammals of the region."

(The Birdbooker Report)

"This well written book will help to raise attention to the threatened mammals of Luzon and species conservation on Luzon and the Philippines as a hotspot for mammal biodiversity."

(Suiform Soundings)

"The Mammals of Luzon: Biogeography and Natural History of a Philippine Fauna, is the most comprehensive book about Philippine mammals ever written. It is a highly accessible story of scientific inquiry and discovery"

(Acta Chiropterologica)

"The book is so important that students of Biology, particularly those studying natural history, should read this book. Libraries in universities should have a copy of this book for their students"

(Dumaguete Metropost)

"... I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is an insightful, thorough and fascinating text based upon a lifetime of thought and hard-won data. The text is engagingly written throughout, the volume wonderfully produced and illustrated, and overall well worth the cover price. It could be set as a discussion text for students, used to generate examples for lectures, or simply read for pleasure alone."

(Frontiers of Biogeography)

"In reviewing this ambitious book, I was consistently impressed with its attention to detail, its question-oriented approach, and its extensive illustrations. The authors have dedicated much of their careers to understanding the evolution of Philippine mammals. The Mammals of Luzon Island is the culmination of that research. It is impeccably researched, clearly written, and amply illustrated. For students of island biogeography this is a must-read blueprint for understanding the mammal fauna of a fascinating region."

(Journal of Mammalogy)

Reseña del editor:

Revealing the astounding mammalian diversity found on the largest Philippine island, The Mammals of Luzon Island is a unique book that functions both as a field guide and study of tropical fauna. The book features 120 fully illustrated species profiles and shows how the mammals fit into larger questions related to evolution, ecology, and biogeography. Luzon’s stunning variety of mammals includes giant fruit-eating bats; other bats so small that they can roost inside bamboo stems; giant plant-eating rodents that look like, but are not, squirrels; shrews that weigh less than half an ounce; the rapidly disappearing Philippine warty pig; and the long-tailed macaque, Luzon’s only nonhuman primate.

While celebrating Luzon’s remarkably rich mammal fauna, the authors also suggest conservation strategies for the many species that are under threat from a variety of pressures. Based on a century of accumulated data and fifteen years of intensive study, The Mammals of Luzon Island delivers a message that will appeal equally to scientists, conservationists, and ecologically minded travelers.
