Since 1969, the American Society of Mammalogists has published 20 to 30 species accounts each year that cover taxonomy, anatomy, ecology, and other aspects of the animals' biology. At this site from series editor Virginia Hayssen of Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts, you can download PDFs of these definitive references for more than 700 species. The animals featured include the snow leopard (Uncia uncial) of central Asia and the naked mole rat (Heterocephalus glaber) of eastern Africa, which dwells in colonies similar to those of bees and ants.
