A Field Guide to Wildlife of the Australian Snow Country

Ken Green, William Osborne

    Research output: Book/ReportOther

    Abstract

    This is a comprehensive field guide to Australiaâ¿¿s high mountain fauna and environmentâ¿¿an environment that extends for more than five degrees of latitude. Exploring the interrelationships between snow cover and wildlife, the authors combine ecological details and species accounts. At the heart of the book are detailed descriptions of the mammals, birds, reptiles, frogs, fish, insects and other invertebrates, including their distribution, breeding, food and habitats. A completely updated edition of the authorative Wildlife of the Australian Snow-Country (published in 1994), this book extends the fifteen yearsâ¿¿ extensive fieldwork and research on aspects of the ecology of alpine wildlife by another fifteen years. It updates the reader on the many changes that have occurred in that time: the visible impacts of climate change on animal species and habitats, the decline of high mountain frogs due to the chytrid fungus, and the impacts of high altitude fires in 2003 and 2006. Field Guide to the Wildlife of the Australian Snow-Country is indispensible for the professional and amateur naturalist alikeâ¿¿and anyone interested in the rich natural world of Australiaâ¿¿s snow country. In a handy format with PVC cover to protect it from the elements, it is equally at home in a backpack and reference library.
