The sole purpose of these articles is to create an awareness among the people for the preservation of wild life-so varied and colourful-which, due to the increasing effects of urbanisation-the conquest of forests and waste lands, the radical improvements in the methods of rapidity of transport, has faced the threat of extinction of total annihilation during the past. The articles in the book are highly informative so as to cover the shape, size, colour, food, habits and other distinctive features of the Mammals of the various orders of the Indian Empire. The book is divided into four parts: Part I & II deal with ungulates or hoofed animals (both Even-toed and odd-toed) and Part III & IV deal with carnivora or beasts of prey. The series of articles are replete with a vein of critical and searching inquiry to analyse and examine the physical environment, climatic conditions and vegetation conducive to the growth of the different species of wild life in the various regions of the country. Thus the book makes the people alive to the vast treasures stored in the Kingdom of Animals whose existence is essential from the ecological and utilitarian point of view. This book will be beneficial to lovers of Nature, agriculturists, tourists and visitors, students of Nature study. The forest departments of Provinces will also find the book profitable for formulating the future policies for the preservation of wild life in the sanctuaries or in the National parks.
