Mammals of Australia

Author(s): Terence Lindsey


Information is organized simply, with individual species or group entries describing key characteristics such as where they are found, food requirements and behavioural habits. Each entry is accompanied by a photograph and, where appropriate, distribution maps. A key feature of the text is the "gee whiz" sections, which answer many of the most commonly asked questions about why animals do what they do, revealing interesting facts and providing practical information for the amateur enthusiast. In addition, fact panels interspersed throughout the text highlight surprising snippets of information.
