Donald Thomson's Mammals and Fishes of Northern Australia is a unique record of the work of a brilliant zoologist and anthropologist far advanced for his time.

The text includes notes from diaries and records which Thomson kept on his travels as well as details of individual animals in his collection meticulously edited and annotated by Joan M Dixon and Linda Huxley.
