Abstract. The highly distinctive and mostly endemic Australian land mammal fauna has suffered an extraordinary rate of extinction (>10% of the 273 endemic terrestrial species) over the last ∼200 y: in comparison, only one native land mammal from continental North America became extinct since European settlement Extinctions in the Australian land mammal fauna have oc-curred at a rate of about one to two mammal species per decadesince the first post-1788 Australian mammal extinction, probablyin the 1840s (Fig. 1).
