    Default Predators with Pouches: The Biology of Carnivorous Marsupials

    Predators with Pouches: The Biology of Carnivorous Marsupials
    by Menna Jones, Chris Dickman, Mike Archer





    Pages:
    504
    Publisher: --
    Edition: April 2003

    ISBN-13: 978-0643066342

    Description

    Predators with Pouches provides a unique synthesis of current knowledge of the world's carnivorous marsupials from Patagonia to New Guinea and North America to Tasmania. Written by 63 experts in each field, the book covers a comprehensive range of disciplines including evolution and systematics, reproductive biology, physiology, ecology, behaviour and conservation.
    Predators with Pouches reveals the relationships between the American didelphids and the Australian dasyurids, and explores the role of the marsupial fauna in the mammal community. It introduces the geologically oldest marsupials, from the Americas, and examines the fall from former diversity of the larger marsupial carnivores and their convergent evolution with placental forms.
    The book covers all aspects of carnivorous marsupials, including interesting features of life history, their unique reproduction, the physiological basis for early senescence in semelparous dasyurids, *** ratio variation and juvenile dispersal. It looks at gradients in nutrition
    from omnivory to insectivory to carnivory as well as distributional ecology, social structure and conservation dilemmas.

    Enjoy!
