Fur-Bearing Mammals of California, 1937: List

In his 1937 book, Joseph Grinnell, first director of Berkeley's Museum of Vertebrate Zoology (1908-1939), included descriptions of the seven subspecies of the California Grizzly first identified by C. Hart Merriam.

"It is a curious fact that the larger the animal the more difficulty we have in gathering accurate information about it."

Merriam and Grinnell made every effort to recover grizzly skeletons and other specimens when reports of killings reached their attention during the last years as the number of grizzlies declined.
