This historic publication provides an account of every species of native mammals known to have existed in Australia since European settlement and every introduced species now living in a wild state. The result of many years of intensive research, it is a magnificent photographic record, structured into an authoritive, accessible form by Ronald Strahan.This book surveys the rich and varied world of Australia's mammals, from well known Platypus, Koala and Kangaroo species: to the less known pygmypossums, bats and carnivorous marsupials; the seals and sea lions; and introduced mammals such as the Rabbit, Camel and Deer. Each species account summaries behaviour and habitat, diet, reproduction and growth, and factors that lead to death; in short, everything that is known of an animal's current biology and survival status. Detailed statistical information is provided along side the fascinating and peculiar details of animals' lives.
