The original, large format editions of Australian Bush Creatures have now been through 6 reprints with over 12,000 copies in print. This standard format paperback edition in bookshelf friendly format of 300 x 230 mm was the result of many book trade requests.

From Abalone to Zebra Finch, and the hundreds of creatures in between, this delightfully crafted book explores Australia's amazingly varied wildlife shown in its natural habitat.

Over 400 land, sea and air-born creatures are organised alphabetically using a mixture of common, scientific and aboriginal names. Each A-Z plate also explores Australia's varied landscapes, both natural and introduced. Every page is a journey of discovery for the reader, with many animals as difficult to instantly recognise here, as they are in the bush. To help locate and identify all the bush creatures depicted, informative plates follow the main A-Z sections and form a visual appendix that will have the reader cross referencing for years to come.

Australian Bush Creatures trade edition is thoroughly researched and revised, with every creature meticulously illustrated and placed in its usual habitat. It is , as the illustrator describes it, a window into the worlds second largest eco-system that will awake a curiosity and love for the extraordinary diversity of the Australian environment and its inhabitants.

An A-Z of Australian Bush Creatures is also a stunning showcase of the artistic skills, imagination and passion for Australian wildlife of Myke Mollard. This wonderful book is destined to become a classic of its kind and a treasured part of any child's library.

Munara, ngai wanggandi Marni na pudni Lairma yertaamma. Wortangga, Mami na pudni Banba-banbalyanna. Tirramangkotti turiduri ngarkuma birra. Ngai Birko-mankolankola Tandanyanku. Naityo Yungadalya, Yakkandulya. First, let me welcome you all to Kaurna country. Next, I welcome you all to the S- cide Prevention Conference as an ambassador of the Adelaide people. For thousands of years, Kaurna people have held conferences in this country with the Nukunu, the Ngadjuri, and the Narrunga. Whole groups of Aboriginal people came - gether and had Banba-banbalya, which was a conference, discussed their differences and new ideas. This country has always had education and the Kaurna people were the edu- tors. I'm proud to say they led the way in conferencing and education. All of the univer- ties in this state have Kaurna names for their Aboriginal Education Units. The University of South Australia has the Kaurna Higher Education Centre as its main campus and the Yunguni ("to communicate") building at the new campus, Yunggondi, which means "to give information," is at the Flinders University. The Adelaide University has Woldo Yerlo, which means "sea eagle" and is the totem of my aunt. Aunty Glad was the matriarch of the Kaurna people in this city and also helped found Tauondi, which became the Aboriginal College. She helped introduce Aboriginal people to f- malized education.


Australian Rainforests

RRP $35.00

Why do Australian rainforests occur as islands within the vast tracts of Eucalyptus? Why is fire a critical ecological factor in every Australian landscape? What were the consequences of the use of fire by the Ice Age colonists? In this original and challenging book, David Bowman critically examines all hypotheses that have been advanced to answer these questions. He demonstrates that fire is the most critical factor in controlling the distribution of rainforest throughout Australia. Furthermore, while Aboriginal people used fire to skillfully manage and preserve habitats, he concludes that they did not significantly influence the evolution of Australia's unique flora and fauna. This volume, the first comprehensive overview of the diverse literature on this topic, solves the puzzle of the archipelago of rainforest habitats in Australia. It is essential reading for all ecologists, foresters, conservation biologists, and others interested in the biogeography and ecology of Australian rainforests.
