From the tiny shrew to the black bear, Pennsylvania's hills and valleys are teeming with .

From the tiny shrew to the black bear, Pennsylvania's hills and valleys are teeming with sixty-three species of wild mammals. Many of these animals are rarely seen except when pursued by an interested biologist, mammologist, or nature photographer.

Excellent book on the mammals of Pennsylvania. We used this extensively at our Boy Scout Camp to teach with and as background information for the counselors. Excellent little book, even for those of us not in Pennsylvania.

Guide to the Mammals of Pennsylvania by. Joseph Merritt, Ruth Anne Matinko. Want to Read savin. ant to Read.

Mammalogist Joseph F. Merritt offers an engaging, in-depth discussion about a diverse array of small mammals, from the rare Kitti’s hog-nosed bat of Southeast Asia to the bizarre aye-aye of Madagascar to the familiar woodchuck of North America. Small mammals include those mammals weighing under five kilograms (approximately eleven pounds). Merritt introduces the various species that fall under this heading, then follows with chapters that cover such topics as behavior, modes of feeding, locomotion, habitat use, reproduction, and coping with heat loss.

Got it. We value your privacy. Comparison of two sampling methods of small mammals in the margin of a lowland forest' Biologia, Bratislava, 54: 595-597, 1999; ISSN 0006-3088. The catching efficiency of snap traps and pitfall traps in sampling rodents and shrews was compared. The two types of traps were exposed simultaneously in the margin of a floodplain forest in the East Slovakian Lowland during 1996-1997.

  • Excellent book on the mammals of Pennsylvania. We used this extensively at our Boy Scout Camp to teach with and as background information for the counselors. Worth it - easily to read, well-layed out.

  • First of all there are only 15 color photos in the book. There are a lot of black and white photos but a lot of them you cant really see the animal well. A lot of the mammals listed don't even have photos. Its an ok guide considering its the only one I could really find on the subject. There is a lot of info though which makes the book worth reading but it needs better visual aids!

  • Excellent little book, even for those of us not in Pennsylvania.

  • awesome book

  • An excellent field manual that elaborates on all the mammals of Pennsylvania from the common Eastern Cottontail to the elusive Martin and Fisher. Information includes animal description and photo, reproduction, interesting facts, adaptations, food, habitat, prey, predators, biology, reasons why the mammal is endangered or threatened, and behavior. Each description is in easy to understand language except for certain biological vocabulary. This is a must-have for hunters, Boy Scouts, students, environmentalists, and any interested resident of Pennsylvania. It is especially helpful to teachers of students of wildlife including those training Envirothon students.
