Welcome to Mammals of India, an internet-based and peer-reviewed resource devoted to Indian mammals. India has spectacular mammals, which have been studied intensively over the past hundred and fifty years. Yet, dedicated and scholarly web resources with detailed species pages on Indian mammals have been missing. This website is an attempt to offer the community a popular platform on which to organize the available information in a free and user-friendly format to which they can also contribute in various ways. The hope is that this will make the basic information freely available to any mammal enthusiasts, and also help cater to the research needs of the community if it so desires.

This website is a sister of the Butterflies of IndiaMoths of IndiaCicadas of IndiaOdonata of IndiaReptiles of India and Amphibians of India websites, which are designed to disseminate comprehensive information on various aspects of the biology of Indian faunas, encourage their observation to study their natural history and ecology, gather population and distributional data in a centralized database, and spread awareness about their conservation.
