Predators with Pouches: The Biology of Carnivorous Marsupials
This book covers all aspects of carnivorous marsupials, including life history, reproduction, the physiological basis for early senescence in semelparous dasyurids, sex 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.
