The Latin names of the orders of mammals given here are followed by their common names and the families that make up each order. Examples of the various types of animals included in each family also are Size: 18KB. In , the mammals were comprehensively revised by Malcolm C. McKenna and Susan K. Bell, which has resulted in the McKenna/Bell classification. Their book, Classification of Mammals above the Species Level, is a comprehensive work on the systematics, relationships and occurrences of all mammal taxa, living and extinct, down through the rank of genus, though molecular genetic data.

A primate is any mammal of the group that includes lemurs, lorises, tarsiers, monkeys, apes, and humans. The order Primates, with its or more species, is the third most diverse order of mammals, after rodents and bats. This is a list of selected primates ordered alphabetically by taxonomic.   Familiarity with the twenty-nine insect orders is the key to identifying and understanding insects. In this introduction, we have described the insect orders beginning with the most primitive wingless insects, and ending with the insect groups that have undergone the .

There are only four species (the yellow-spotted hyrax, the rock hyrax, the western tree hyrax, and the southern tree hyrax), all of them native to Africa and the Middle East.

There are more than 5, species of living mammals, arranged in about families and as many as 27–29 orders (familial and ordinal groupings sometimes vary among authorities). The rodents (order Rodentia) are the most numerous of existing mammals, in both number of species and number of individuals, and are one of the most diverse of living lineages.
