New Australian mammal finding book

A new book on where to find Australian Mammals is now available in Australian bookshops.  It’s by David Andrew, and the layout will be familiar to anyone who has seen the second edition of the Thomas & Thomas bird site guide (for which David was a co-author).  More information including a searchable preview is available at

I’d call this book a site guide, but somewhat confusingly it says “this book is not designed as a site guide”.  I think what he means is that the site description will tell you what species are likely to be in which park, and maybe sometimes which trails to walk on, but it won’t tell you exactly which tree to sit under.

I understand Jon has been promised a review copy.
