This index lists both the common and scientific names of individual species in alphabetical order. Alternate names, both common and scientific, are included as separate listings.
For a listing of a common name, look under the last word in the name. For example, to find the listing for Stephens' Kangaroo Rat, look under "Rat, Stephens' Kangaroo." (There are a few exceptions to this "last word" rule; e.g. "Mexican Prairie Dog" is listed under "Prairie Dog, Mexican", not "Dog, Mexican Prairie.")
Non-English names are listed by the first word in the name, using the anglicized
spelling. For example, the Nepali term for "Snow Leopard", "Hiu
Chituwa", is listed under "Hiu."
