The first three chapters discuss Colorado's physiography and ecosystems; the evolution, anatomy, and biogeography of mammals; a history of their study in Colorado; and, the many different values that people hold in relation to mammals. The remaining chapters provide accounts of species, each including a description, the natural history, and the distribution of the particular species in Colorado.
