Summary

This book describes the ecology, history and behavior of the kangaroos, wallabies, and rat kangaroos. It describes their interaction with both the original inhabitants and the European settlers of Australia and addresses the issue of how we can best manage the population of these animals, making the points that some species are heading for extinction due to habitat loss while others have increased in numbers since humans first settled in Australia.
