A book for amateur naturalists, visitors, tour operators, students of environmental science and anyone else fascinated with Australian nature. The major groups of mammals, reptiles, frogs and other native fauna are outlined, highlighting differences from other world regions, explaining where their ancestors came from (and thus why there are similarities with some countries), how they are adapted to Australia's ecosystems, and some of the conservation problems they now face. It includes advice on where to encounter various species and groups, and how to observe them with minimal disturbance. It is not an identification guide, but it does help narrow down the possibilities to use in conjunction with identification aids. References to many other useful publications and websites are included. This edition is in grey-scale to keep the price down to a level affordable by all who are interested in quickly deepening their understanding of our country's wildlife. Tips are offered to assist the reader's memory of our major wildlife groups.The book has been through various incarnations. It started as a group of lecture notes when the author was lecturing to university students on Techniques for Wildlife Conservation and was unable to find a good, affordable textbook to recommend to students for a comprehensive overview of Australia's major groups of fauna and flora. It was later edited as lecture notes for an adult education course on the Wildlife of Southeast Queensland. When the author started running educational wildlife tours for her company (Araucaria Ecotours) she edited once again and turned it into a free booklet for guests on her tours. This booklet has now been through several editions, and finally expanded into book form. The language is nontechnical for readability by tourists and nature enthusiasts who lack a biological background, but with some explanations of common scientific terms, and it is sufficiently comprehensive to be useful also to students of environmental science and environmental consultants.
