Wildlife of the Box-Ironbark Country.
Chris Tzaros (CSIRO Publishing)
forests and woodlands of Victorias Box-Ironbark Region are one of the most
important areas of animal diversity and significance in southern Australia.
They provide critical habitat for a diverse array of woodland-dependant
animals, including many threatened species such as the Squirrel Glider,
Brush-tailed Phascogale, Regent Honeyeater, Swift Parrot, Pink-tailed
Worm-lizard and the Woodland Blind Snake.
Wildlife of the Box-Ironbark Country gives a comprehensive overview of the
ecology of the box-ironbark habitats and their wildlife. It covers all of the
mammals, birds, reptiles and frogs that occur in the region, with a brief
description of their distribution, status and ecology, together with a
distribution map and superb colour photograph for each species. The book
includes a Where to Watch section, featuring a selection of national parks,
state parks and nature conservation reserves as places where people can
experience the ecosystem and its wildlife for themselves.
Wildlife of the Box-Ironbark Country is intended for land-managers,
conservation and wildlife workers, land-holders, teachers, students,
naturalists and all those interested in some way in learning about and
appreciating the wildlife of this fascinating and endangered ecosystem.
