A group of special interest to mammalogists, taxonomists, and systemicists, ungulates have proven difficult to classify. This comprehensive review of the taxonomic relationships of artiodactyls and perissodactyls brings forth new evidence in order to propose a theory of ungulate taxonomy.

With this straightforward volume, Colin Groves and the late Peter Grubb cut through previous assumptions to define ungulate genera, species, and subspecies. The species-by-species accounts incorporate new molecular, cytogenetic, and morphological data, as well as the authors’ own observations and measurements. The authors include references and supporting arguments for new classifications.

A starting point for further research, this book is sure to be discussed and hotly debated in the mammalogical community. A well-reasoned synthesis, Ungulate Taxonomy will be a defining volume for years to come.

About the Author:

Colin Groves is a professor of biological anthropology at Australian National University and the author of Primate Taxonomy. Peter Grubb was an English zoologist who, until his death in December 2006, was widely recognized as the world’s leading ungulate taxonomist.

Review:

"Groves and Grubb have produced the first major revision of hoofed mammals since Richard Lydekker's contributions nearly 100 years ago... Their collaborative volume will likely represent the authoritative classification of ungulates well into the future, possible for the next 100 years."

(Choice)

"Groves and Grubb have written THE book about ungulate taxonomy, which will be the benchmark and reference for the next years."

(Journal of the Zoological Society for the Conservation of Species and Populations)

"An important contribution to ungulate taxonomy written by two well-published and highly regarded authors. It should be purchased by any mammalogist or evolutionary biologist interested in ungulates for his or her library."

(Roger D. Applegate Journal of Mammology)

"[Ungulate Taxonomy] will become a reference base for future studies and it is a pleasant book to handle."

(A.W. Gentry Zoological Journal of the Linnean Society)

"Ungulate Taxonomy is a unique and significant contribution to the literature."

(Steve Demarais Journal of Wildlife Management)
