Publisher Comments:

Details the diversity, evolution and ecology of Australia's native rodents.

Book News Annotation:

There are about 60 living species of mice and rats in Australia and New Zealand, representing the most ecologically diverse mammals of the region. Breed (reproductive biology, Australian native mammals, U. of Adelaide) and Ford, a highly experienced trapper and scholar of Australian wildlife examine the animals of the sub-family murinae, describing about 25 percent of all species of Australian mammals. They include everything from the very small delicate mouse to large (frightfully large, actually) tree rat, various common field mice and even the infamous the carnivorous water rat. They cover the animals' evolution, ecology, diversity, reproductive biology, dietary adaptations, social behavior and migration, with close attention to rodent parasites and diseases, features of gastrointestinal tracts, distribution of the various species since the arrival of Europeans, and conservation programs. The full-color and monochrome photos and line drawings are well-chosen, and the maps are very helpful. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
