This fully
revised and updated edition of A Field Guide to the Mammals of Australia is the
only comprehensive guide to identifying all 382 species of mammals known in
Australia. This book provides concise and accurate details of the appearance,
diagnostic features, distribution, habitat, and key behavioural characteristics
of all mammals known to have occurred in Australia or its waters since the time
of European settlement. Each double-page spread provides all the information
needed to identify an animal, a full-colour illustration of the entire animal, a
smaller diagram of diagnostic features, a distribution map, and species
description and measurements, including details of how to differentiate between
similar species.

Identification keys are provided for groups that are
difficult to identify to species level, including keys to the genera of small
marsupials, rodents, and bats, and all marine mammals likely to be washed on to
an Australian beach: whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals, and the Dugong.

Readership: Anyone interested in Australian mammals whether
for purposes of identification, e.g. bush walkers, tourists, or for educative or
reference purposes, e.g. school and tertiary students, zoologists, wild life
officers.
