Abstract:
Knowledge of mammalian diversity is still surprisingly disparate, both regionally and taxonomically. Here, we present a comprehensive assessment of the conservation status and distribution of the world's mammals. Data, compiled by 1700+ experts, cover all 5487 species, including marine mammals. Global macroecological patterns are very different for land and marine species but suggest common mechanisms driving diversity and endemism across systems. Compared with land species, threat levels are higher among marine mammals, driven by different processes (accidental mortality and pollution, rather than habitat loss), and are spatially distinct (peaking in northern oceans, rather than in Southeast Asia). Marine mammals are also disproportionately poorly known. These data are made freely available to support further scientific developments and conservation action.

Issued in four fascicles between 1842 and 1845, together forming the Mammalia volume of Fauna Japonica, edited by P. F. von Siebold.
Original printed paper wrapper has title: Fauna Japonica auctore Ph. Fr. de Siebold. Mammalia elaborantibus C.J. Temminck et H. Schlegel. Lugduni Batavorum : Ex Officin. lithogr. ab A. Arnz & Soc.
Added engraved series t.p. reads: Fauna Japonica sive descriptio animalium, quae in itinere per Japoniam, jussu et auspiciis superiorum, qui summum in India Batava imperium tenent, suscepto, annis 1823-1830 collegit, notis, observationibus et adumbrationibus illustravit Ph. Fr. de Siebold. Conjunctis studiis C.J. Temminck et H. Schlegel pro vertebratis atque W. de Haan pro invertebratis elaborata.
The Fauna Japonica series was based on specimens collected in Japan by Siebold and his assistant, Heinrich Bürger, and on drawings created by Nagasaki artist Keiga Kawahara and others. Siebold's collection was relocated to the Leiden Museum, where the series' authors (Temminck, Schlegel, and de Haan) were based. The series, as originally envisioned by Siebold, was never completed.
Tome number supplied from the series record in the online catalog of the Natural History Museum (London, England).
