Summary

An authoritative but accessible guide to 250 animals, insects, and birds that inhabit the average Aussie suburb, written by ABC Radio broadcaster and urban ecology specialist, Professor Chris Daniels. This book will appeal to nature lovers everywhere. Have you ever wondered what that peculiar insect sitting on a leaf in your backyard is called? What about the behaviour of those acrobatic possums that swing along the phone lines at dusk? And the beautiful lizard that lives under a stone near the compost bin? In every Australian suburban street there is a secret world; a world seen but not really understood, of animals that live alongside us. In Professor Christopher B. Daniels' A GUIDE tO URBAN WILDLIFE, he introduces you to 250 creatures that live on your street, in your backyard, in the air, at your local beach or even in your house, and takes you on a tour of their world, a world increasingly affected by its interaction with its human neighbours. In this fascinating book, you will learn how to recognise the animals you live among, and learn of their behaviours, communication, eating habits and peculiarities. Beautifully illustrated with full colour photography, this book is the essential guide for any nature lover, or anyone who wants to learn more about the world around them.
