Author: Victoria Laurie This book presents, in words and photographs, the southwest region of Australia, a land triangle that encompasses a multitude of natural worlds. One third of all known Australian plant species is found growing in the southwest, and the region has been designated as 'Australia's Global Biodiversity Hotspot,' one of only 34 such hotspots in the world and the only one on the Australian continent. Driven by a passion for the country, author Victoria Laurie presents readers with the voices of scientists and others dedicated to protecting a fragile ecology that supports up to 150,000 species. Life forms and landscapes are a feature of this informative and thrilling region that has evolved with abundant biodiversity because of its isolation. This compelling book confirms the southwest of Australia as one of the most intriguing places on earth.
