The book as with the BBC TV series presents a view round Australasia, focusing on the unique wildlife and the geographical factors that caused them. The book is packed to the brim with gorgeous wildlife and scenic photography. Definately one to keep going back to for inspiration.
This an excellent book that deals with the flora and fauna of Australia New Zealand and related islands. Sections are devoted to deserts, gumtree country,oceans,islands and new worlds.Each section is defintive in its own right but i think the section on islands should have been expanded to include the unique fauna of Tasmania that has specis found only on that island.The pictures re out standing.The list of picture credits indicate the authors made a very compre hensive search to get the best. My only criticism is the use of the terms "down under" and "australasia".Down under by common usage refers tob Australia only while australasia refers to a much bigger area than covered by this book.
