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.
"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
