Now in its third edition, and with over 850 pages, this book provides an account of every species of native mammal known to have existed in Australia.

The result of many years of intensive research, The Mammals of Australia has been written by more than 240 authors, all acknowledged experts who have worked in the field with the species they describe. Written in an accessible style, the book provides an account of every species of native mammal known to have existed in Australia since European Settlement; 389 in total. Beautifully illustrated with full-colour photographs, each species account includes a detailed description of the animal and its behaviour, a distribution map and a facts box that gives size, identification features, synonyms and alternative common names, subspecies, conservation status and abundance.
