About this book

Focuses on Yathong, New South Wales, where three species of Kangaroo - red, eastern grey, and western grey - overlap and create a unique opportunity for ecological study. The authors spent three years in Yathong examining the comparative ecology and behaviour of the different species using systematic counts, radio telemetry, direct observations, and other techniques. The result is a detailed and comparative analysis of the species' population sizes, home ranges and movements, activity patterns, habitat selection, feeding behaviour, and social organization.

Contain[s] a number of insightful and testable hypotheses. -- Marco Festa-Bianchet, "Ecoscience"
