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.

  • Could do with a bit of modern tech

    :: Spoiler Alert ::

    The book seems to be more academic than purposeful, the index is sparse and photos are old black and white. It could with a bit more content on animal behaviour, eg. wombats prefer to mark their territory with fecal matter on rocks or logs, generally in prominent positions. The reproduced pics of scats make identification difficult. Comparing the pics in the book to what I have seen in the bush!!
