Guidelines[edit]

The Third edition of Wilson & Reeder's Mammal Species of the World (2005) is the basis for the taxonomic framework used by WikiProject Mammals. The MSW3 classification may be overridden by the conclusions of more recent studies which are widely accepted in secondary sources. MSW3 listings can be found online at the Bucknell University. (For example: Canis lupus.) The Mammal Diversity database is a new resource that reflects widely accepted taxonomic changes since the publication of MSW3.
