    DescriptionThe book addresses the questions: Is Australia's rapidly growing human population and economy environmentally sustainable for its estuaries and coasts? What is needed to enable sustainable development? To answer these questions, this book reports detailed studies of 20 iconic Australian estuaries and bays by leading Australian estuarine scientists. That knowledge is synthesised in time and space across Australia to suggest what Australian estuaries will look like in 2050 and beyond based on socio-economic decisions that are made now, and changes that are needed to ensure sustainability. The book also has a Prologue by Mr Malcolm Fraser, former Prime Minister of Australia, which bridges environmental science, population policy and sustainability.

    Review quote
    From the reviews: "This nicely illustrated book is a wonderful mix of case studies, geographical descriptions, history, scientifically-based predictions, socio-economic anecdotes, and fundamental physical, biological, chemical and environmental science ... . It is written at a level where most readers, specialist scientists or not, will have no difficulty following the text and appreciating the arguments. As a summary of the historical, the current, and the anticipated status of Australian estuaries, on a level that can be appreciated by almost everybody, it is excellent." (Reg Uncles, ECSA Bulletin, Issue 62, 2014)
