Guile, Melanie, 1949- What is Australia?

Summary

"Plants and animals: Australias native plants and animals are unlike any others in the world, and they mean different things to different people. In Plants and Animals, the plants and animals of Australia are examined through the eyes of different groups of people. To farmers, they are a source of income, while plants and animals have deep spiritual meaning in Indigenous cultures. Our native plants and animals are a source of wonder to conservationists, who want to protect them, and to writers and artists who are inspired by them. But everyone agrees on how important they are."--Provided by publisher.

Notes
