Australian Rainforests

£23.50

Product description

This hardcover book is in very good condition overall. The book has a gilded title on the spine and front cover, and the cover is without major issue. The book does not include a dust jacket. On the edges of the pages, there are a few noticeable markings. Inside, the pages of the book are in very good condition overall and are without issue.

Until recently, few people have associated rainforest with Australia. The present-day distribution of Australian rainforest is limited but it was formerly more widespread and was the dominant vegetation type of the entire continent. The contraction to its present limits reflects environmental changes that have taken place over many millions of years.;In this book Dr. Adam gives a general account of the Australian rainforests: what they are, where they are, and how their present distribution has evolved. His aim is to provide a broad framework that will enable new results to be placed in context. The book concludes with a historical account of human interaction with the rainforest from late Pleistocene times to the 1980s. The history of the exploitation of the Australian rainforests and the development of a conservation ethic have important lessons for the conservation of rainforests world-wide.
