Summary
  • Annotation. The Australian continent provides a unique perspectiveon the evolution and ecology of carnivorous animals.Since European settlement, Australia has seen theextinction of one large marsupial predator (thethylacine), another (the Tasmanian devil) is in dangerof imminent extinction, and still others have suffereddramatic declines. By contrast, two recently-introducedpredators, the fox and cat, have been spectacularlysuccessful, with devastating impacts on the Australianfauna.Carnivores of Australia: Past, Present and Future exploresAustraliaa s unique predator communities from prehistoric,historic and current perspectives. It coversmammalian, reptilian and avian carnivores, both nativeand introduced to Australia. It also examines the debatesurrounding how best to manage predators to protectlivestock and native biodiversity.
