Story
Introduction
The American Society of Mammalogists (ASM) was established in 1919 for the purpose of promoting interest in the study of mammals.

In addition to being among the most charismatic of animals, mammals are important in many disciplines from paleontology to ecology and evolution. We, of course, are mammals and thus are in the interesting position of studying ourselves in quest of a greater understanding of the role of mammals in the natural world.

The ASM is currently composed of over 4,500 members, many of whom are professional scientists. Members of the Society have always had a strong interest in the public good, and this is reflected in their involvement in providing information for public policy, resources management, conservation, and education.

The Society hosts annual meetings and maintains several publications. The flagship publication is the Journal of Mammalogy, a journal produced six times per year that accepts submissions on all aspects of mammalogy. The ASM also publishes Mammalian Species (accounts of individual species), and Special Publications, books that pertain to specific taxa or topics, and we maintain a mammal images library which contains many exceptional photographs of mammals.
