Since its first edition in 1947, The Mammals of Texas has been the most authoritative source of information on the mammalian wildlife of Texas. Now in its 7th edition, the updated reference includes physical descriptions and life histories, photographs and illustrations, current distribution maps, taxonomy and nomenclature, and conservation status summaries for all 202 species of terrestrial and marine mammals of the state.

Texas Tech University and particularly the NSRL have been at the forefront of mammalian research in Texas. This new edition incorporates much of the recent research being conducted by staff and students affiliated with the NSRL.
