In easy-to-read text, this handy reference book lists Australian mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates. Concise descriptions of their physical appearance, habitat, diet, mating and behaviour are given. In all, 900 species of our wildlife are dealt with, making the Handbook a valuable resource and reference guide for the student, scholar, naturalist, hobbyist or anyone eager to know more about the unusual creatures of Australia. Accompanying the text are over 490 colour photographs taken by nature photographers, experts in the field.”
