Tropical Ecosystems – New Book

Member Prof Dilwyn Griffiths has published a new book, Tropical Ecosystems in Australia: Responses to a Changing World. Copies can be obtained from the publisher.

The book draws on a wide range of case studies of tropical Australian ecosystems ranging from coastal coral reefs and mangroves, known to be among the most vulnerable to the effects imposed changes, to cropping and pasture lands which, under careful management, have the potential remain as productive and sustainable agricultural or forestry ecosystems.

A senior member has written: “It is a fascinating read. He covers an enormous range of topics in a succinct and special way, with appropriate case studies… It is a valuable reference for the uninitiated and the experienced – for under- and post-graduates and academics and also for professionals in management and policy development working across tropical Australia.”
