America’s Premier Mammalogy Publisher will be at the ASM annual meeting in Oklahoma City
Once again Johns Hopkins University Press will present its line of top-selling Mammalogy books. Our titles range from classics such as Walker’s Mammals of the World to the field’s leading textbook, Mammalogy: Adaptation, Diversity, Ecology, to the technical-reference must-own book Mammal Species of the World. Please stop by our booth to meet with me (executive editor Vince Burke) and see works by our illustrious line up of authors, including Troy Best, George Feldhamer, Colin Groves, John Koprowski, Joseph Merritt, Virginia Naples, DeeAnn Reeder, John Seidensticker, Mike Steele, Richard Thorington, Uldis Roze, Don Wilson, and E.O. Wilson. Hear about upcoming books by Gerardo Ceballos, Craig Frank, Stan Gehrt, Larry Heaney, Kris Helgen, Jon Jenks, Rolland Kays, Steve Sheffield, Andrew Smith, and Felisa Smith.
Whether you want to browse the shelf or chat about book ideas you may have, we always appreciate a few minutes of your time to converse about the latest trends in mammalogy, exciting discoveries in the field, and books that need to be written.
If you stop by, please consider ordering an advance copy of Gerardo Ceballos’s monumental work, Mammals of Mexico, which will be published in August. Also, we welcome hearing from those of you who teach mammalogy so that we can update you on the schedule for the new edition of the Feldhamer et al. textbook.
