About this book

Land snails are perhaps among the most misunderstood of Australia's invertebrate fauna. To most people they have a largely unpleasant reputation earned through encounters with a relatively small number of introduced species that damage crops and backyard vegetables and introduce diseases. This field guide attempts to set the record straight by introducing the reader to the vast diversity of native species living in the forests of eastern Australia.

This volume covers 794 species and 3 subspecies (native and introduced) in 44 families, ranging from Cape York down to the New South Wales /Victoria border. It contains 2000 colour images, distribution maps, key localities and habitat and ecology notes.
