Presland, Gary

Forgotten landscapes and erased eco-systems are brought to life by Gary Presland who so eloquently reconstructs Melbourne at the time of European settlement.  He looks at the history of Melbourne from the point of view of nature and considers the ways that urban development has been influenced by the nature of local environments.  Gary Presland shows how natural landscapes have influenced the contours of the city and how we, in turn, have altered them.  He draws on both historical and scientific sources to create a detailed and fascinating picture of diverse landscapes, supporting an enormous range of flora and fauna.
