About this book

Until the mid-20th century, the thylacine was the world's largest carnivorous marsupial, and its disappearance has left many questions and contradictions.

Alternately portrayed as a scourge and as a high value commodity, the thylacine's ecology and behaviour were known only anecdotally. In recent years, its taxonomic position, ecology, behaviour and body size have all been re-examined scientifically, while advances in genetics have presented the potential for de-extinction.

With 78 contributors, Thylacine: The History, Ecology and Loss of the Tasmanian Tiger presents an evidence-based profile of the thylacine, examining its ecology, evolution, encounters with humans, persecution, assumed extinction and its appearance in fiction. The final chapters explore the future for this iconic species – a symbol of extinction but also hope.

Media reviews

"A newly published book has provided fresh perspectives on the thylacine, delving into everything from de-extinction efforts to the role of the internet in boosting the cultural profile of the extinct species. Thylacine: The History, Ecology and Loss of the Tasmanian Tiger, published by CSIRO, features the work of 78 contributors and is purported to be the first major summary of the available evidence relating to the carnivorous marsupial in 20 years."
– Rob Inglis, Herald Sun, 13 March 2023
