Honestly, I think that this edition targets more common public, that don't bother how many Klipspringers are out there Nevertheless I appreciate the change, because most of us who have the full HMW & HBW collection, will buy the book anyway. I am also happy that we will finally see the common names next to the illustrations. Something that I missed a lot in previous books.Of course they won't, that won't sell any books!
The illustrated checklist that came out a few years ago also used a more toned down bovid taxonomy, presumably the same one here.
No plate for domestic mammals too so in a book with all mammals you dont' have an illustration of dromedary camel !
Can't imagine there are that many that persist to this day?Wish Lynx would come up with All the Domesticated Mammals of the World or / and All the Domesticated Animals of the World so that we can have a solid reference of what humans have "created" in the last 5,000 years !
Just got to know that earliest dates suggested for the domestication of the goat goes back to 12,000 years ago !
So, definitely Domesticated Mammals and Animals have a solid history with humans which goes back to many many thousand years.
