About this book

From the eucalyptus-dotted woodlands to the awe-inspiring beauty of the coral reefs, Australia offers wildlife-seeking travellers the opportunity to see unique creatures roaming diverse habitats. "Australian Wildlife" covers all the essential information of a reference book - from biology to behaviour - in one handy, easy-to-read guide. Wildlife writer Stella Martin takes visitors through dense rainforest and across parched deserts to discover how bizarre creatures evolved in isolation. She combines the encyclopaedic knowledge of David Attenborough with the enthusiasm of the late Steve Irwin. Find out why some fish change sex and how thorny devils drink.

Bradt's "Australian Wildlife" is a book to read in bed, which will get you up at dawn and out with your binoculars in the outback Stella Martin has lived in Australia for 20 years, working as a natural history writer for Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service.
