LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - A University of Wyoming professor has authored a new book about Wyoming’s 117 native wild mammal species.

Mammals ranging from grizzly bears to bats and pygmy shrews are the subject of the book by zoology professor emeritus Steve Buskirk.

It is titled “Wild Mammals of Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park.”

Buskirk says there’s been a need for some time for a book that people can reference to find out what wild mammals are in Wyoming, what they are called, where they occur and how their distribution has changed over the decades.

His book goes beyond the traditional field guide, offering detail such as geographic range and conservation status for mammalian species.

The book also characterizes habitats of Wyoming mammals and addresses the conservation and management of mammals in the region.
