Predators with Pouches. The Biology of Carnivorous Marsupials. M. Jones, C. Dickman AND M. Archer (Eds) A Review by M.L. Augee
25(2) 217 - 218
THIS book arose from a symposium on “Carnivorous Marsupials” held by the Australian Mammal Society in 1999. However it is not a symposium volume in the usual sense of being a compilation of papers presented at the symposium. Research papers on specific topics from the symposium have been hived off to the Australian Journal of Zoology 48(5) and to Wildlife Research 28(5). Predators with Pouches is comprised of review papers, some from the symposium but most apparently solicited. Like traditional symposium volumes, the papers included are of very different levels of coverage and quality of presentation. Most however present solid data and thoughtful reviews.
