THE FLAME OF CONVENIENCE

Notify me when this product is available:

Why is it that wildlife in the Top End began disappearing in the late 1990’s? Some of Australia’s best biologists have been trying to answer this question for decades. But no clear answer has yet appeared. Wildlife loss in Australia’s monsoonal tropics (including Kakadu National Park) is the result of a complex range of issues, most recently topped off by the toxic Cane Toad. This book approaches the tragedy of these declines from a different angle than most, and offers a solution (at least in part), which has so far received little attention. Greg Miles suggests that much of the natural landscape between the Arnhemland border and the western Top End is not as natural as we may think. He argues that the fire regime currently employed by natural area land managers and others, is largely off target if wildlife protection is the goal.
