    About this book. The ability of small mammals to exploit environmental resources, based upon a rapid adaptation to short-term changes in population and/or the environment, as well as to a variety of local conditions, implies a strong impact upon natural resources. mammals allows different species to live very different lifestyles. Mammals that fly, glide, run, burrow, jump, or swim have evolved special morphologies, over time that allow them to do so. Such adaptations help them to exploit different habitats, so much so that mammals can be found on every continent and in every ocean on earth.

Only those land species which crossed before the creation of the English Channel and those introduced by humans.

    Extant marine mammals include more than species with representatives in three mammalian orders: Carnivora: pinnipeds, marine otters, and polar bears; Cetacea: whales, dolphins, and porpoises; and Sirenia: manatees and dugongs. Objectives are identified and the organization of the book is presented.   Most small UK mammals do not hibernate. Instead, they reduce their activity to conserve energy in winter, but will feed intermittently during mild weather. Although small mammals are normally wild and secretive, gardens offer winter assistance in the form of spilled bird seeds, dry sheds, outbuildings and compost bins, so they’ll venture.
