Atlas of the Geographic Distribution of the Arvicoline by Georgy I. Shenbrot, Boris R. Krasnov

By Georgy I. Shenbrot, Boris R. Krasnov

Any dwelling organism is shipped somewhere. plenty of details on species files are scattered in courses and museum catalogues, yet just a couple of taxa have merited adequate awareness for a compilation of the on hand information on their geographic distribution. This e-book is aimed to fill during this hole for the species of the rodent subfamily Arvicolinae. It represents an atlas of the worldwide distribution of all 139 arvicoline species. Distribution maps are compiled from files from the literature and museum catalogues. A map for every species is gifted as either checklist issues and a polygon of a anticipated distribution. The list issues have been georeferenced whereas the polygons of estimated distributions have been developed utilizing the GARP set of rules. The booklet offers a listing of and distributional facts for the subspecies in addition to taxonomic notes and references. the amount is addressed to experts in theriology, taxonomists, biogeographers and conservationists. it is going to be of use to any zoological library.
