The only truly comprehensive guide to all 376 Australian mammals, including kangaroos, koala, bandicoots, dunnarts, Bilbies, cuscuses, possums, wombats, bats, rodents, deer, seals, whales, and dolphins. The guide uses the classic field guide layout, including 4-color illustrations drawn by Australia's premier artist, Frank Knight, diagrams to help distinguish similar species, measurements, distribution maps, and accurate details of appearance, diagnostic features, habitat, and key behavioral characteristics. Simplicity and organization makes this a perfect guide for tourists, bush walkers, and students.

About the Author:


Peter Menkhorst has been fascinated by Australia's flora and fauna for most of his life. He has participated in fauna surveys in many parts of Australia and has worked in wildlife research and management in Victoria for thirty-five years. He has published widely in the scientific and popular literature, including editing an Australian bird guide.

Frank Knight worked as an illustrator for CSIRO for twenty-five years. He has been a member of and has exhibited with the Society of Animal Art in New York. He has also illustrated a number of natural history books, including an Australian bird guide.

Review:


"This substantial guide is laid out in a side-by-side format, with the illustrations of each animal facing their description. Each entry includes the description, distribution, habitat, status, behavior, and similar species. An introduction provides instructions for using the guide, including field techniques, identification keys, and habitat types (with photos). The guide is beautifully produced: the quality of the illustrations alone makes this a noteworthy reference."--SciTech Book News
