Tim Flannery draws together the results of his five-year field survey and literature review on the mammals of an area extending from the islands just east of Sulawesi in the Moluccas, to the Cook Islands in the central South Pacific, north to Micronesia, and south to New Zealand, but excluding New Guinea. He identifies, classifies, and describes every living native mammalian species of the region as well as introduced and prehistorically extinct species.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive book on fascinating area. June 25, 2001
By Jodi
Absolutely fascinating book by well known mammalogist Tim Flannery. In the same series as "The mammals of Australia" by Strahan and "Mammals of New Guinea" by Tim Flannery, and equally as well laid out. Sections of the book are divided into families such as muridae (rats), phalangeridae (possums) and pteropodidae (fruit bats). Each species description includes a colour photograph, along with most available information on the species (many species are relatively unstudied. Overall, this book is a wonderful insight into the mammal fauna of this area, and I highly recommend it for any mammalogist or interested individual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning December 15, 2002
Not only does this book hold a wealth of information impossible to find elsewhere, it is also accompanied by beautiful photos.
The detail on the fauna of the Moluccas is better than anything one could find for any other, actually far less remote region of Indonesia. Every bit as good as the book on the Mammals of New Guinea by this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent review December 27, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is an excellent reference book/review of the mammal species of the South-West Pacific and Moluccan Islands. The majority of the mammal species in this region of the world are bats. This book gives some information on the many bat species but also on bandicoots, shrews, rats, wallabies, cucus, gliders, and other mammals.
