Lagomorph Biology: Evolution, Ecology, and Conservation
Alves, Paulo C.; Ferrand, Nuno; Hackländer, Klaus (Eds.)

"This volume presents 26 original articles that address issues involving lagomorph evolution, ecology, physiology, behavior, and conservation. The articles are all scholarly in nature … clearly, this book is meant for the small audience of researchers in the field. … Useful for libraries that support specialized research in lagomorph biology. Summing Up: Recommended. Researchers/faculty." (F. T. Kuserk, CHOICE, Vol. 46 (01), September, 2008)
"Lagomorph Biology: Evolution, Ecology, and Conservation nicely illustrates that lagomorphs represent a diverse group of mammals rich with tractable research problems and, more importantly, ripe for exposure to new researchers asking new questions. Because this perspective is rare, the publication of this book in itself is a tremendous success for lagomorph researchers. … Overall, the papers are of high quality, the book is well edited, and the included illustrations are good." (Brian P. Kraatz, Journal of Mammalian Evolution, Vol. 15, 2008)
“This book was compiled and contains 26 contributions from 70 authors. … presents recent advances in research pertaining to pikas, hares and rabbits. … the recent work on genetics and perspectives in improving biology and ecology knowledge of numerous species are developed. This very interesting book also contains an appendix accompanied by the geographical distribution and complete list of species with their conservation status.” (Michel Cuisin and Christiane Denys, Mammalia, Vol. 73 (3), 2009)
