About this book

Provides a synthesis of current knowledge the world's carnivorous marsupials - from Patagonia to New Guinea and North America to Tasmania. Written by 63 experts in each field, the book covers a comprehensive range of disciplines including evolution and systematics, reproductive biology, physiology, ecology, behaviour and conservation. It covers all aspects of carnivorous marsupials, including interesting features of life history, their unique reproduction, the physiological basis for early senescence in semelparous dasyurids, sex ratio variation and juvenile dispersal. It looks at gradients in nutrition-from omnivory to insectivory to carnivory-as well as distributional ecology, social structure and conservation dilemmas.
