For each of the world's more than 4500 mammal species, this add-on puts in our
listing software the English common name, the scientific name, the English
common and scientific names of its family and order, and a very comprehensive
specification of the range. It was prepared from various authoritative sources
by Andrew Duff and Ann Lawson in a two year project.

Our listing software has been widely used with birds for many years. Enhanced
by the add-on, it now lets a user record a sighting of any mammal at any place
for any date and include a lengthy sighting note if desired. The records
automatically update the user's annual and life lists for all locations
(county, state/province, region defined by name or by latitude and longitude,
nation, world). These lists can give complete information for every sighting,
or for only each mammal's first sighting, or just name the mammals seen.
Furthermore, the software can now list in detail the range of every mammal and
can produce check lists of the mammals of all major world areas (all US 
Canadian provinces, and nations, plus most major islands or island groups).
Mammals endemic to an area are labeled on the area's check list. And each
mammal is labeled to show if the user has seen it within the area, outside the
area, or both.
