This revision of The Australian Museum Complete Book of Australian Mammals (Angus & Robertson, 1983) covers all species of mammals, native and introduced, exclusive of whales, known to have existed in Australia since the arrival of Europeans. After an overview on origin, classification, and conservation, the book focuses on species accounts prepared by over 150 experts. Each brief, signed account includes identification, size, habitat, reproduction, conservation, a range map, selected references, and, for nearly all, one or more excellent color photos. The editor is a senior research scientist with the Australian Museum in Sydney. This readable reference on a unique fauna will appeal to general readers and specialists alike. Highly recommended for both public and academic libraries.-Bruce Neville, Univ. of Texas at El Paso Lib.
