A FIELD GUIDE TO MAMMALS OF AUSTRALIA By Peter Menkhorst **BRAND NEW**.
Australia has a rich and diverse mammal fauna with many species found nowhere else - 89 per cent of Autralian marsupials, and 73 per cent of Australian placental mammals, are endemic. Only New Guinea shares with Australia the presence of representatives of all three subclasses of mammals - monotremes, marsupials and placentals.

"This substantial guide is laid out in a side-by-side format, with the illustrations of each animal facing their description. Each entry includes the description, distribution, habitat, status, behavior, and similar species. An introduction provides instructions for using the guide, including field techniques, identification keys, and habitat types (with photos). The guide is beautifully produced: the quality of the illustrations alone makes this a noteworthy reference."-- SciTech Book News
