Field Companion to Mammals of Australia

Edited by Steve van Dyck, Ian Gynther & Andrew Baker

Genuinely practical in the outdoors, the book includes accounts of 389 species and newly developed, comprehensive identification keys. The field companion is introduced by a Mammal Distribution Matrix, which provides a classified checklist of all mammals in Australia (including those extinguished since European settlement) and the distribution of extant species in each state and territory.

The authors have developed separate keys, illustrated with detailed drawings and maps, for the six states and the Northern Territory, to simplify the identification process and allow the reader to confidently separate all mammal species, no matter how subtle the differences. With the addition of these identification keys, this book becomes more than a field guide. Although it is intended primarily to be used outdoors and allows the user to finish identification based on more obscure characteristics, which is an advantage for some hard to identify species groups it is also a usual reference. 573 pages.
