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.

He is Full Professor for Wildlife Biology and Wildlife Management at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna and coordinates the master programme on Wildlife Ecology and Wildlife Management. Hackländer is member of numerous mammalogical societies and served as president of the German Society for Mammalian Biology from 2009 to 2016. He was Editor-in-Chief of the journal Mammal Review from 2009 to 2015 and co-edited two books on Lagomorpha, his favourite mammalian taxon. Hackländer’s research covers all fields of mammalian biology, including ecology, behavior, physiology, diseases and management.

Frank E. Zachos is head of the Mammal Collection at the Natural History Museum Vienna, Austria, affiliated lecturer at the University of Vienna and affiliated professor at the Department of Genetics at the University of the Free State in Bloemfontein, South Africa. He studied biology, history of science and philosophy in Kiel and Jena, Germany, and received his PhD in zoology in 2005. In 2009, he completed his habilitation for zoology and evolutionary biology. His main research topics comprise the intraspecific biodiversity, phylogeography, population genetics and conservation of mammals and birds, with a particular focus on red deer and other ungulates. He also has a long-standing 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.
