The Mammals of South Australia


    WITH the appearance of the second part of his review of the mammals of South Australia, Prof. Wood Jones completes the account of the monotremes and marsupials. It is at once the most exhaustive and comprehensive guide to these two groups that has yet appeared, and is distinguished for its originality of treatment, for the vast amount of most interesting observations on the habits of these animals based on an intensive field experience, and for the large series of clearly reproduced illustrations from original drawings which serve to elucidate the text.
