Table I.

Approximate Numbers of Families, Genera, and Species of
Mammals in the six Regions.


Table II.

Numbers given in Table I. reduced to Percentages of Total
Numbers of Families and Genera.


The groups entirely confined to each region are classed as "endemic "; those that cross the frontiers slightly as "quasi-endemic " ; all others are considered as "wide-spread."

The percentages, it will be observed, on account of the omission of fractions, do not exactly make up one hundred in every case.
