About this book

Updated edition, this is a comprehensive account of all 46 species of landbreeding mammals known in New Zealand, including native, exotic, wild, feral, living and extinct. Most of New Zealand's native species are bats and seals; the majority of its fauna is actually introduced. The text in this book, therefore, emphasises the ecological effects of each introduced species.

'...the reasonably priced second edition of this handbook is a must for everyone interested in New Zealand mammals and/or the biology of introduced species and certainly deserves to become as widespread as the first edition. Mammalian Biology 73 (2008) 79-82.
