Stepping into the New Guinea rainforest is like entering a time machine, according to Tim Flannery. There, animals unknown anywhere else except as fossils continue to flourish within scarcely disturbed ecological communities. In this beautifully illustrated guide, Flannery presents the most complete information available about the natural history and systematics of New Guinea's unique mammals. For this revised edition, the author has expanded and completely revised his acclaimed handbook on the natural history and systematics of New Guinea's unique mammals.
