Abstract

One hundred and one mammal species are described that occur in the southern United States. Narrative accounts provide a comprehensive overview of relevant taxonomy, conservation status, distribution, life history, and guidelines for management. Mammal associations within 17 terrestrial and five aquatic communities are presented in the form of habitat relationship matrices. Dichotomous keys for identifying each species are provided using pelage, body measurements, and cranial characteristics. The guide is designed to provide land managers with the ecological information necessary for assessing the influence of management and environmental change.
