The book offers a synthesis of the natural values and ecology of
north Australia together with recommendations for actions needed to
maintain these values. The book’s authors, John Woinarski
(NRETA), Brendan Mackey (ANU), Henry Nix (ANU) and Barry Traill
(Pugh Foundation, formerly The Wilderness Society) have brought
together a great deal of recent research in these areas, much of it
enabled by the TS–CRC partners, particularly through John
Woinarski and NRETA.
Chapters cover "The Land and its People", "How the Landscape
Works", "The Natural Values of Northern Australia", "Problems in
the Landscape" and "A Sustainable Future for Northern Australia".
The book also includes new research that among other things has
produced some notable maps that place the tropical savannas’
natural values in global and national contexts.
The Nature of Northern Australia was supported by the
TS–CRC, The Wilderness Society, the Myer Foundation and
Charles Darwin University.
It is published by ANU EPress.
