Abstract:

This book introduces the species of Australian mammals. It includes a painting of each species, along with distribution map. This book includes about 320 species of Australian mammals currently recognised in 2003. Almost all of the paintings in this book come from photographs taken of individual species in their natural settings, however in a few cases where no photograph exists, the author has used the published type description of the species or other available information to create the painting. The individual species are arranged in alphabetical order using their common name. However a Quickfind index is provided at the front of the book to enable those familiar with scientific names to go directly to any specific species. Details are given for each Subclass, Order, Suborder, Superfamily, Family and Subfamily. The text on each species has clear, precise information and is presented in such a way, so as to make of value to readers from the layperson, naturalist through to the scientist. Indeed anyone who may have an interest in learning more about Australian mammals. The comprehensive reference list gives the reader access to thousands of scientific papers and articles for further reading.
