Field Guide to Wildlife of The Australian Snow Country
By Ken Green & William Osborne
Mammals, birds, insects, reptiles, frogs, fish etc.
This is a comprehensive field guide to Australia’s high mountain fauna and environment – 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. A 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.
The book updates the reader on the many changes that have occurred since the first edition was published in 1994: the visible impacts of climate change on animal species and their habitats, the decline of high mountain frogs due to the chytrid fungus, and the impacts of high altitude fires in 2003 and 2006.
