London: New Holland Publishers, 2013. Octavo, paperback with plastic cover, colour photographs, illustrations, line drawings, maps.
Practical for use outdoors, the book includes images and accounts of 388 species along with 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. This invaluable companion to "The mammals of Australia" (third edition - see stock id 26492) is intended to be taken out into the field and used in conjunction with the more comprehensive volume.
