From the era of early cave paintings to the present time, ruminants - deer, antelopes, cattle, buffalo, goats, giraffes, and their relatives - have captured the human imagination. Present on every continent except Australia and Antarctica, they have been more important to human subsistence than any other mammalian group. This book is a discussion of the evolution, biology, relationships, and conservation of this fascinating and ecologically significant group of mammals.
