Book Description Lynx Edicions, Spain, 2016. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Las ratas y similares del orden Rodentia constituyen casi la mitad de las especies de mamíferos. Teniendo esto en cuenta, realizamos una encuesta entre nuestros lectores cuyo resultado mostró una clarísima preferencia a favor de que los roedores se trataran en dos volúmenes en lugar de uno. El volumen 6 cubre, pues, el orden Lagomorpha, que incluye conejos, liebres y picas, además de todos los roedores, exceptuando el suborden Myomorpha (ratas, topillos y similares). Este grupo incluye unas 35 familias que se han extendido por todo el mundo, ocupando todos los continentes excepto la Antártida además de un gran número de islas de los mayores océanos. Como de costumbre, el texto contiene la información actualizada de todas las especies, así como una ilustración de cada una de ellas. Cada familia incluye fotografías en color que documentan la variedad de comportamientos de estos diversos e interesantes mamíferos.Este volumen incluye también un capítulo especial: Una visión general de los roedores, incluyendo capítulos sobre la morfología, taxonomía y la historia evolutiva; el porqué del estudio de los roedores y las herramientas para hacerlo.
