It deals with 28 prehistoric mammals, 8 mammals extinct during the historic period, 43 existing mammals, 227 birds, 5 reptiles, 6 amphibians, and 151 fishes. Under each species is a brief summary showing its status and distribution in the area. Trustworthy information has been collected from many observers, and the whole work is marked by careful precision, an indispensable quality io faunistic census-taking.
