Island Jewels: The Natural History Of Western Australia's Islands (Paperback)
Western Australia has over 3,500 islands, the largest number of any Australian state or territory. All remain in public ownership; almost all south of the Kimberley are managed by a single government agency, whilst almost all Kimberley islands are native title; a situation unique in the world.
This book, written by two experienced wildlife scientists, documents the islands' plants and animals, and discusses the islands' history, impacts of invasive species, and management actions. It is arranged geographically, taking the reader on a journey from the Kimberley south along the west coast to Cape Leeuwin, and then east to the Archipelago of the Recherche.
Throughout, you will be introduced to the Island Jewels of Western Australia in all their magnificence.
