Felines of the World: Discoveries in Taxonomic Classification and History provides the most recent taxonomic, paleontological, phylogenetic and DNA advances of wild felid and domestic cat species following guidelines dictated by the IUCN SSC Cat Specialist Group.

It highlights the importance of felines and their role as predators in maintaining the ecological biome balance in which they have evolved.

The book delves into the anatomical, evolutionary and zoogeographic features of fossil and current felid species.

Each species is described in detail, detailing its classification, habitat and biological habits.

This book also presents the most updated threat and conservation status of each species. This book is an ideal resource for zoologists and paleontologists, primarily those interested in the evolution and features of extinct and extant felines.
