Abstract

Eighty-six references relating to the Australian water rat or Rakali (Hydromys chrysogaster Geoffroy), have been collated to create this bibliography. References were taken from available written literature (published and unpublished, with or without peer review) to provide a comprehensive resource for researchers. Using these references we present a summary of the distribution, status and biology of the species. In addition, each reference has been sorted into the following groups: behaviour, conservation status, description, diet, distribution, ecology, evolution, general, genetics, species management, parasites, physiology, reproduction and threatening processes.
