Mammals inhabit every corner of our vast continent, yet the great majority of species are seldom seen. The only clue to their presence might be a footprint left on a muddy track, a scat deposited on a rocky ledge, or bones scattered on a forest floor. In Tracks, Scats and Other Traces, Barbara Triggs provides all information needed to identify mammals anywhere in Australia, using only the tracks or other signs they leave behind. Features a new cover design, and covers all Australian states and territories.

About the Author

Barbara Triggs has lived in the bush, among the mammals she writes about, since 1972. An authority on the identification of mammalian traces, she is the author of several natural history books. Mammal Tracks and Signs won the Whitley Award for the Best Field Guide in 1984.

                The book is very well thought out. It has a plastic cover which helps protect it for when you take it into the bush. This book lives in my backpack it's great.
