Life of Marsupials
Joint winner of the 2005 Whitley Medal.
Included in Choice Magazine's 2006 Outstanding Academic Titles list.
Over the past half a century research has revealed that marsupials - far from being 'second class' mammals - have adaptations for particular ways of life quite equal to their placental counterparts. Despite long separate evolution, there are extraordinary similarities in which marsupials have solved the challenges of living in such environments as deserts, alpine snowfields or tropical rainforests. Some can live on grass, some on pollen and others on leaves; some can glide, some can swim and others hop with extraordinary efficiency.
In Life of Marsupials, one of the world's leading experts explores the biology and evolution of this unusual group - with their extraordinary diversity of forms around the world - in Australia, New Guinea and South America.
