Mammals, Zoology, Utah, Utah County, Ecology
Based on the premises that an accurate determination and description of the mammals of Utah County is a prerequisite for subsequent research in ecology, geographic distribution and evolutionary taxonomy, this thesis is submitted. While it is essentially taxonomic, there are included related subjects to permit a more thorough interpretation of the subject as a whole.
Summarizing, the objectives are:
- a. To list and key the known mammals of Utah County with descriptions and measurements.
- b. To ascertain their geographic range within the county.
- c. To present significant ecological and geological data for the proper appreciation of the problems of evolutionary taxonomy.
- d. To reconstruct the original picture of the county before white man's appearance and influence.
- e. To give an account of previous collecting and observation.
- f. To bring together the literature dealing with the problem of Utah county mammalogy.
