Winner of the 2004 Whitley Medal.

Shortlisted in the Scholarly Reference section of the 2004 Australian Awards for Excellence in Educational Publishing.

This authoritative volume represents a complete and comprehensive guide to the husbandry of Australian marsupials and other mammals. Australian Mammals: Biology and Captive Management dedicates a chapter to each group of animals including the platypus, the echidna, carnivorous marsupials, numbats, bandicoots and bilbies, koalas, wombats, possums and gliders, macropods, bats, rodents and the dingo.

For each animal group the following information is covered: Taxonomy; Housing Requirements; General Husbandry; Feeding Requirements; Handling and Transport; Health requirements; Behavior; Breeding; and Artificial Rearing.

The book provides a complete literature review of all known information on the biology of each group of animals and brings information on their biology in the wild into captive situations. Also, for the first time, it provides practical guidelines for hand-rearing, and has been extensively reviewed by zookeepers and veterinarians to incorporate the most up-to-date information and techniques.

Australian Mammals: Biology and Captive Management provides practical guidance for zoo-keepers, veterinarians, zoologists, researchers and students.

About the Author:

Stephen Jackson is an adjunct Senior Lecturer at the University of New South Wales. He has studied different aspects of Australian mammals over the last 20 years from which he has published numerous refereed papers and book chapters.

Review:

“This is a ‘must-have’ for all veterinarians with any likelihood of working with Australian mammals. Many clients of veterinarians will also find it valuable....It will become one of those books with pages well worn by frequent referral or just because of its inherent magnetism.” (Dr I Denney Australian Veterinary Journal)

“...every wildlife carer, zoo, and breeding facility (in Australia and elsewhere) that holds or breeds Australian mammals should have one of these volumes.” (Karen Firestone Australian Mammalogy)

Australian Mammals is an impressive guide to our current knowledge of Australian native mammal husbandry and will certainly be a worthwhile purchase for anyone involved in the captive care of mammals." (Jenny Martin Austral Ecology)

“[T]he best book on its subject ever to appear....an essential purchase for any zoo holding animals from the region it is devoted to....every zoo should buy this book." (Nicholas Gould International Zoo News)

"[P]rovides practical guidance for zoo-keepers, veterinarians, zoologists, researchers and students." (ARAZPA Newsletter)

“[T]his is a landmark publication and the reference for all those interested in maintaining animals in captivity. It matters not whether you are a professional, research institution, wildlife carer, National Parks personnel or an enthusiastic amateur – this book is for you....it contains the work and knowledge of a large number of experts and professionals, many of whom I have come to know personally over the years, I believe it will become a ‘must have’ volume on the library shelves of people seriously interested in the future of Australian mammals.” (Ed McAlister AO, President)
