dc.description.abstract "A catalog of recent mammalian species from oceanic and oceanic-like islands is presented. Our list covers the taxa that were found by the first human settlers on oceanic and oceanic-like islands worldwide. In a first section (catalog) we list 95 species described before 1993 that were not considered by Wilson and Reeder (1993) (14 Xenarthra, 5 Chiroptera, 4 Insectivora, 18 Primates, 6 Carnivora, 2 Bibymalagasia, 3 Proboscidea, 13 Artiodactyla, and 30 Rodentia). In addition, we tabulate some 41-46 or more recently extinct mammals (1 Diprotodontia, 1 Peramelemorphia, 4 Xenarthra, 2 Insectivora, 1 Chiroptera, 2 Primates, 2 or more Proboscidea, 4 Artiodactyla, and 24-29 Rodentia) that remain undescribed from such islands. The tentative list of all the endemic mammals from oceanic and oceanic-like islands of the world is presented as appendix 1, which includes at least 11 living species of insular mammals described after 1993 and another 15-16 living species (3-4 Insectivora, 2 Chiroptera, 10 Rodentia) still undescribed"--P.
