Mammal Images Library
We are excited to present a free special collection of articles from Journal of Mammalogy, ILAR Journal, and BioScience. Article topics range from the diverse ethical issues that arise when working with free-ranging animals, to the desire to safeguard natural populations, to essential resources when reviewing wildlife protocols. The collection also includes the recently updated guidelines from the American Society of Mammalogists for the use of wild mammals in research and education. We invite you to read the collection and to explore the guidelines for conducting research with free-ranging animals.
