A Field Guide to Australian Mammals

Mammals inhabit every corner of our vast continent, yet the great majority of species are seldom seen. The only clue to their presence might be a footprint left on a muddy track, a scat deposited on a rocky ledge, or bones scattered on a forest floor.  Barbara Triggs provides all information needed to identify mammals anywhere in Australia, using only the tracks or other signs they leave behind.  Tracks, Scats and Other Traces is organised for easier identification of the visable traces left by Australian mammals.

This guide is divided into four sections:

  • Tracks – line drawings are matched with photographs of the same tracks in sand or mud;
  • Scats – the farces of 128 species are illustrated in colour, a selection of scats and a distribution map and habitat information is given for each species.
  • Shelters, feeding signs and other traces provides detailed descriptions and more than 70 colour photographs of the distinctive traces of mammals.
  • Bones – forty full-page plates of skulls, lower jaws, humeri and femurs cover 38 commonly found species, plus a detailed guide that covers all mammal groups.
