Woodlands - A Disappearing Landscape.
by David Lindeman, Mason Crane and Damian Michael. CSIRO Publishing.
Woodlands, as defined in this book, are distinguished from forests by the fact that their canopies do not touch, tree heights are usually lower and they usually have a grassy understorey. Over the last 200 years Australian woodlands have been placed under great pressure from agriculture and grazing. This book details the value of woodlands in the overall ecosystem with excellent descriptive text accompanied by beautiful colour photography by Esther Beaton.
