RECENT (2018) LITERATURE ON LAGOMORPHS

Compiled by Andrew T. Smith from the Web of Science; April 2019

 

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 (71%; 22/31 species) went unstudied, and two species (O. curzoniae and O. princeps) were the subject of 81% of all investigations. Among Lepus, 56% (18/32) went unstudied, and half of all investigations were of a single species, L. europaeus. Among the rabbits, 59% (20/34) were unstudied, and one species, Oryctolagus cuniculus, was the subject of over 80% of all investigations.
