McNab, Angus

This very much needed guide is a comprehensive resource of the 662 species of amphibians, reptiles, mammals, marine mammals, birds including seabirds found throughout Victoria.  It is some 25 years since publication of a guide to the mammals of Victoria and there has not previously been a book covering all of Victoria’s birds.  This guide is also currently the most taxonomically up to date reptile and amphibian book available for the State.

It contains over 1,700 images, identifying descriptions, distribution maps, preferred habitat types, optimal observation periods, elevational ranges, similar species and how to distinguish between them, plus notes on subspecies, conservation status and ecology.

And, for those wildlife devotees, 199 vagrant and visitor species that have been recorded in Victoria and its territorial waters. It also covers 33 extinct species, 22 escapee and invasive species, and 23 potentially occurring species for a complete overview of Victoria’s wildlife. This guide has all the information you need to ensure you have the best chance to find that elusive species
