From the publishers of Kingfishers and Related Species and Parrots of the World comes a comprehensive and detailed book, one of the few to concentrate on this much-neglected group of marsupials.
Each of the six possum families is introduced, with an accompanying text on the behaviour and characteristics of each group. All species are discussed individually with information on: Identification; Geographic Variation; Size; Distribution; Habits and Behaviour; and Habitat. Each species, and some of the subspecies, are beautifully illustrated by the wildlife artist Peter Schouten, with black and white technical drawings of each genus.
Available as a Limited Edition Collectors' Volume (bound in green bison-grained leather with raised bands, signed by the author & illustrator, limited to 250 copies)(#36929) or a Standard Edition (#36924).
