N. This book deals with the biology of mammalian species associated with aquatic habitats and contains 20 chapters. Chapters are independent and represent papers that were presented at a conference held in November 1995 at the meeting rooms of the Zoological Society of London.

This book looks at the habitat utilization, adaptation, feeding ecology and conservation status of a range of riparian mammals, and will give insights into the problems facing these fascinating animals, and how they might be overcome.

391 pages, 90 line illus, figs, 68 tabs, maps. The first book to provide an overview of freshwater amphibious mammals. It examines a range of species (otters, mink, watershrews, hippopotami, etc) and looks at their habitat utilisation, adaptation, feeding ecology and conservation status. All of these animals are highly adapted to this semi-aquatic way of life, and increasing pollution, and the use of rivers and streams and their banks by humans for a range of purposes has a profound effects on the habitat's continued suitability for their inhabitants.

Many mammals, such as otters, live in close association with rivers and streams, feeding in them, or using them as a place of safety or means of escape from predators. The distinct adaptations that riparian mammals have evolved in order to live in these environments also handicap them for living elsewhere. These animals are therefore threatened by alterations to their environment. In recent years, our rivers have become highly polluted, and have been subject to bankside modifications for agriculture and forestry, enhanced or decreased water flow, and recreation. As a result, they have become less and less suitable for these highly specialized animals. This book looks at the habitat utilization, adaptation, feeding ecology, and conservation status of a range of riparian mammals. It gives insights into the problems facing these fascinating animals, and how they might be overcome.
