About this book

A major symposium on macropods (kangaroos, wallabies and rat-kangaroos) in 2006 brought together the many recent advances in the biology of this diverse group of marsupials, including research on some of the much neglected macropods such as the antilopine wallaroo, the swamp wallaby and tree-kangaroos.

A total of 78 authors have contributed 32 chapters to Macropods, which covers the proceedings of the symposium under the themes of genetics, reproduction and development, morphology and physiology, ecology and management. Macropods covers the new developments in macropod biology, including genomics, landscape ecology, endangered species and fertility control.

Media reviews

"This volume will be of general interest to macropodid enthusiasts, and to those who wish to have an introduction to the diversity of literature on macropodids."
- Daniel T. Blumstein, Quarterly Review of Biology, June 2011, p.151

"With its combination of authoritative reviews and important new studies, this book will (unsurprisingly) be essential for macropodoid specialists, and should also be useful to those with a more general interest in marsupial biology."
- Robin M D Beck, Journal of Mammal Evolution, Published online 6 October 2010
