RECENT (2019) LITERATURE ON LAGOMORPHS

Compiled by Andrew T. Smith from the Web of Science; July 2020

 

Note: Most species (62%; 60/97) have not been studied at all in the past year – a result found across all the major groups of lagomorphs. Most Ochotona (81%; 25/31 species) went unstudied, and three species (O. curzoniae, O. princeps, and O. roylei) were the subject of 83% of all investigations. Among Lepus, 38% (14/32) of species went unstudied, and 45% of all investigations were of a single species, L. europaeus. Among the rabbits, 62% (21/34) of species were unstudied, and one species, Oryctolagus cuniculus, was the subject of 83% of all investigations.
