Mammalogy is the branch of biology that deals with the study of mammals. It encompasses such diverse areas as the structure, function, evolutionary history, ethology, taxonomy, management and economics of mammals. Approximately 4,200 species of living mammals and numerous extinct species comprise the material for study. Included are egg-laying echidnas, the platypus, pouched marsupials, tiny shrews, bats, mice, whales, apes and elephants, to name only a few.
