Lundie-Jenkins, G 1993, 'Ecology of the rufous hare-wallaby, Lagorchestes hirsutus Gould (Marsupialia: Macropodidae
), in the Tanami Desert, Northern Territory: I.
Four families of marsupial are represented in the Australian deserts: the rabbit bandicoot (Thylacomyi-dae), the dasyurid marsupial carnivores (Dasyuridae), the marsupial moles (Notoryctidae) and the kangaroos and wallabies (Macropodidae
Relatively complete developmental series of five eutherians, Mus musculus (Rodentia), Felis domestica (Carnivora), Sus scrofa (Artiodactyla), Manis javanica (Pholidota), and Tupaia javanica (Scandentia), and four metatherians, Monodelphis domestica (Didelphidae), Macropus eugenii (Macropodidae
), Dasyurus viverrinus (Dasyuridae), and Perameles nasuta (Peramelidae) were examined.
Most of these mammals, mainly members of the family Macropodidae
(the kangaroos and wallabies), Peramalidae (the bandicoots), and rodents, are found in the rockier upper part of the plateau, except the bats.
