The mammal fauna of the Brazilian Amazon is one of the most diverse on Earth with over 450 known species. Bringing together more than 70 of the world's top experts on Amazonian mammals, this book unites, for the first time, up-to-date data on the current state of knowledge on the ecology of all groups of non-rodent mammals in the Brazilian Amazon, analyses the effectiveness of current conservation programmes and identifies research and conservation priorities for the future.

Wilson R. Spironello has published nearly 70 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, and has peer-reviewed for journals with ecology and conservation focus. He has a degree in Ecology from Universidade Estadual Paulista Julio de Mesquita Filho, Brazil, and PhD in Biology from University of Cambridge, England. He is currently a researcher at National Institute of Amazonian Research - INPA, in the Brazilian Amazon. In a 40-year research career in the Amazon, his studies have included plant ecology, ecology and management of timber species, primate ecology, and the ecology and population monitoring of medium and large terrestrial and arboreal mammals. He was president of the Brazilian Society of Primatology from 2014-2015.
Adrian A. Barnett has co-edited two previous multi-author mammal conservation books, has published nearly 150 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, has acted as editor on a special issue of American Journal of Primatology, and peer-reviewed for 38 academic journals. He has a degree in Zoology from Oxford and a PhD in primatology from Roehampton University, England. He is currently a member of the ecology and botany departments at the National Institute of Amazonian Research - INPA, Manaus, AM. He has worked in the Brazilian Amazon for 30 years and had published on the ecology and conservation of primates, rodents, aquatic mammals and bats of the region.
Jessica W. Lynch is a Professor at University of California, Los Angeles in the Institute for Society and Genetics and Department of Anthropology, where she teaches courses on Amazonia in the Anthropocene; Human-Animal Interactions; and Primate Genetics, Ecology and Conservation. She received her Ph.D. in Biological Anthropology at University of Wisconsin, Madison. She is a member of the IUCN Primate Specialist Group and Editor-In-Chief for the journal Neotropical Primates. Lynch's expertise centers on the evolution of behavioral and morphological diversity in mammals in the Americas. Her research focuses most strongly on understanding the diversity within capuchin monkeys (Sapajus and Cebus), and incorporates phylogenomic and biogeographic analyses.
Paulo Estefano D. Bobrowiec is a bat researcher at the National Institute for Amazonian Research (INPA) and the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments Project (BDFFP) who has published over 60 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters. He undertook a BSc in Biological Sciences at the Federal University of Uberlândia, a PhD in Genetics, Conservation and Evolutionary Biology, both at INPA, and a second PhD in Zoology at the Federal University of Amazonas. He has worked in the Brazilian Amazon for 22 years and his main area of expertise is bat ecology, community structure and conservation (forest fragmentation and dams flooding).
Sarah A. Boyle has conducted research on the behavior, ecology, and conservation of Amazonian mammals, with a focus on non-human primates, for the past 20 years. She has published more than 50 scientific articles and book chapters. She has a degree in Anthropology from the College of William and Mary, Virginia, USA and a PhD in Biology from Arizona State University, Arizona, USA.

Systemvoraussetzungen:

  • Computer (Windows; MacOS X; Linux): Verwenden Sie zum Lesen die kostenlose Software Adobe Reader, Adobe Digital Editions oder einen anderen PDF-Viewer Ihrer Wahl (siehe E-Book Hilfe).
  • Tablet/Smartphone (Android; iOS): Installieren Sie bereits vor dem Download die kostenlose App Adobe Digital Editions oder die App PocketBook (siehe E-Book Hilfe).

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Wasserzeichen-DRM wird hier ein „weicher” Kopierschutz verwendet. Daher ist technisch zwar alles möglich – sogar eine unzulässige Weitergabe. Aber an sichtbaren und unsichtbaren Stellen wird der Käufer des E-Books als Wasserzeichen hinterlegt, sodass im Falle eines Missbrauchs die Spur zurückverfolgt werden kann.
