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.

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.

  • Good Information, Terrible English

    by on

    First bought this book years ago, lost it and have bought it again. I thought that after all the years the English would have been fixed, but no. Hooves is only acceptable plural of hoof. It annoys me that bad English like this makes it through publishing. Now I have to go through the book and fix the English myself. The pictures could be updated as some are hard to see and more information could be added. More tracks could also be included.

  • 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!!
