Guidelines

The Third edition of Wilson & Reeder's Mammal Species of the World (2005) is the basis for the taxonomic framework used by WikiProject Mammals. The MSW3 classification may be overridden by the conclusions of more recent studies which are widely accepted in secondary sources. MSW3 listings can be found online at the Bucknell University here. (Note: there are some differences between the print edition and the online database. For instance, the online database shows three subspecies of dhole[1] whereas the print edition lists seven.[2]) The Mammal Diversity database is a new resource that reflects widely accepted taxonomic changes since the publication of MSW3.
