The Red Kangaroo In Central Australia

The red kangaroo is at the heart of Australia’s ecological identity. It is Australia’s largest terrestrial land mammal, the largest extant marsupial, and the only kangaroo truly restricted to Australia’s arid interior. Almost nothing was known about the ecology of the red kangaroo when Alan Newsome began to study it in 1957. He discovered how droughts affect reproduction, why red kangaroos favour different habitats during droughts from those after rains, and that unprecedented explosions in red kangaroo numbers were caused by changes to the landscape wrought by graziers. Most importantly, he realised the possibilities of enriching western science with Indigenous knowledge, a feat recognised today as one of the greatest achievements of his career. First drafted in 1975 and now revised and prepared for publication by his son, The Red Kangaroo in Central Australia captures Alan’s thoughts as a young ecologist working in Central Australia in the 1950s and 1960s. It will inspire a new generation of scientists to explore Australia’s vast interior and study the extraordinary adaptations of its endemic mammals. It will also appeal to readers of other classics of Australian natural history, such as Francis Ratcliffe's Flying Fox and Drifting Sand and Harry Frith's The Mallee Fowl, The Bird that Builds an Incubator.

The inspiration for this novel, I believe, has come from the never-ending interest in our kangaroos and saltwater crocodiles from people near and far. These two appear to attract more interest than most of our other animals. I heard on the radio that there was a need for more childrens books. This story reflects some of my loves: animals, the challenges of life, boiled fruit cake, the outback, and the interaction that can be achieved between animals and humans.

Kangaroos are among the strangest of all mammals. This is not so much because they are marsupials and keep their young in a pouch but because they hop. They are the only large animals in the history of vertebrates to have hopped. Author Terry Dawson gets to the heart of the biology that what makes these animals special.

Marsupial Biology developed from contributions commissioned from those attending an international symposium held in honour of Hugh Tyndale Biscoe, Australia's most celebrated marsupial biology authority and co-author of the previous leading marsupial biology text published more than 15 years ago. The book does not comprise papers of narrow focus read at the symposium, but chapters reviewing the knowledge in each key area, written to a book format. It has been tightly edited to ensure a great degree of harmony and is suitable as a comprehensive reference text for graduate and undergraduate students.
