 This is a colourful, useful and easy-to-read account of dung beetles in south-eastern Australia. The book tells why the CSIRO brought dung beetles to Australia, what they do, where they live, how to recognise them and how to help them spread. Seventeen species of imported dung beetles are described and illustrated in colour. Native beetles and beetles other than dung beetles found in dung pads are also described. Maps of the predicted and current distributions of each species follow the descriptions.
