Depredadores con bolsitas ofrece una síntesis única de los conocimientos actuales sobre los marsupiales carnívoros del mundo-desde la Patagonia a Nueva Guinea y desde América del Norte a Tasmania. Escrito por 63 expertos en cada campo, el libro cubre una amplia gama de disciplinas, incluyendo la evolución y la sistemática, biología reproductiva, fisiología, ecología, comportamiento y conservación.
Depredadores con bolsitas revela las relaciones entre los didelfidos americanos y los dasyuridos australianos y explora el papel de la fauna marsupial en la comunidad de mamíferos.
