Twenty-five years after it was first published, this third edition of one of Australia's most successful wildlife guides features full-colour photography and updated information on more than 1000 species, describing the animals most likely to be encountered by residents and naturalists alike. Wildlife of Greater Brisbane is an essential handbook for anyone who cares about our wildlife.
The Greater Brisbane Region is one of Australia's richest natural environments, supporting a remarkable diversity of wildlife across a wide range of habitats. South-east Queensland is home to an astonishing variety of wild creatures – large and small, seen and unseen, common and rare – that share our backyards, parks, bushland and waterways. From biting ants to brilliantly coloured birds, sun-loving lizards and tiny marsupial mice, our native animals are impossible to avoid.
