'… rigorously organized …this volume provides a comprehensive review of the scientific literature on the structure and function of the nervous system of Australian marsupials … as well as a useful glossary. A recommendable book.' Mammalia
As early as 1836, Charles Darwin recognised that Australian marsupials and monotremes represented a 'second creation' with parallel adaptations to those seen among mammals elsewhere. This book explores the structure and function of the 'marsupial' brain and its evolution in the context of the changing Australian environment.
