This invaluable companion to ‘The Mammals of Australia’ (3rd edition) is intended to be taken into the field.
Genuinely practical in the outdoors, this book includes current taxonomy, colour photos, dimensions, weights, up-to-date distribution maps and habitat preferences of all 388 mammal species that occur or occurred in Australia and its territorial waters.
Additionally, the second half of the book contains newly developed, comprehensive, species-level identification keys, generously illustrated with detailed figures and maps, for each Australian state. These individual keys simplify the identification process and allow the lay reader to distinguish all mammal species, no matter how subtle the differences.
