Motherwell, Andre et al

$25.00

1 in stock

This Guide describes & illustrates the flora & fauna (including marine life) of Garden Island, the offshore islands of Shoalwater Bay & Cape Peron. It also includes Tern Island, a recently vegetated islet in Safety Bay. A rich diversity of wildlife is illustrated and attention is drawn to the importance of the area with regard to breeding of species such as the Little Penguin.

The special role of the islands is emphasized by the survival on Garden Island of the Tammar Wallaby, together with several species of trees, plants & bush birds, all of which are absent from the immediate mainland. The main factors favouring their survival are the absence of regular burning, and of predators such as the fox and feral cat. The communities of Garden Island may represent the balance of flora and fauna which existed on the mainland prior to European settlement. 5 sections are included: plants, birds, mammals, reptiles & marine life. pp. 123 illusts #0920R/0821/290722
