Abstract:

The bibliography consists of over 2,100 references directly impinging upon natural mammalian hibernation, including a few references to birds and potential hibernators. A cross-referenced subject matter index makes it possible to locate with relative ease articles dealing with specific features of hibernation. The material was assembled over a number of years by detailed examination of library holdings, review literature, abstracting journals, The Zoological Record, B.A.S.I.C., and individual journals, and with the cooperation of fellow researchers in the field of natural mammalian hibernation. The assembled references were checked for their applicability for inclusion in this bibliography, alphabetized by author, and numbered for cross reference indexing. The parameters of the initial charge for making this bibliography have eliminated references to poikilothermous animals and most references to hypothermia, and have been the guidelines used to reduce some 7,000 references to the approximately one-third which finally comprise this bibliography.
