Taxonomy of Australian Mammals utilizes the latest morphometric and genetic research to develop the most up-to-date and comprehensive revision of the taxonomy of Australian mammals undertaken to date. It proposes significant changes to the higher ranks of a number of groups and recognizes several genera and species that have only very recently been identified as distinct. This easy-to-use reference also includes a complete listing of all species, subspecies and synonyms for all of Australia's mammals, both native and introduced as well as terrestrial and marine.

This book lays a foundation for future taxonomic work and identifies areas where taxonomic studies should be targeted, not only at the species and subspecies level but also broader phylogenetic relationships. It is hoped that this work will be a standard reference for students, scientists, wildlife managers and those interested in the science of taxonomy.
