Kraatz, Maria, Peter Jacklyn, Mike Clark (Editors)

This book is a manual for managing native vegetation across northern Australia – particularly bush blocks.  Ranging across northern Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Queensland, it describes north Australian environments, outlines how to undertake bushland planning, revegetation and rehabitiltation.

Northern Australia is truly one of the last relatively intact landscapes in the world.  That is not to say there aren’t problems.  Invasive weeds, feral animals, fire, soil erosion and declining water quality pose a serious threat to north Australian environments. Finally here is a manual that can be used by people who have a passion for managing, maintaining and improving the condition of Australia’s northern bushland environments. The Bush Book is a collection of chapters and case studies based on people’s practical bushland management work. Material has been contributed by over seventy authors who live and work in northern Australia and edited by Maria Kraatz from EnviroNorth Environmental Consultants NT, Peter Jacklyn from Tropical Savannas CRC NT, and Mike Clark formerly Greening Australia.
