Description

Habitat is the great facilitator of life. It provides nutrition, protection and, with the changing seasons, renewal of natural resources. Ocean and icefield, desert and forest all influence the greater environment, creating a living ecosystem that is in a constant state of flux and evolution After Antarctica, Australia is the driest continent on Earth, but from its teeming oceans to its arid inland, its varied habitats support a wealth of flora and fauna, much of it endemic to the region in which it is found.WILD HABItAtS charts the evolution and development of the Australian environment - the geological forces that shaped the landscapes, the effect of weather and temperature, the creation and adaptation of plant an animal species, and how human interference has, and will continue to, produce environmental change. It provides an in-depth study of Australia from the soil up, adding layer upon layer of information that shows just how this extraordinary continent functions on an environmental level.
