Summary "This book combines the output of almost 15 years of research by biological and physical scientists in a unique World Heritage area in the isolated north of Australia. As such it represents a total update of past books on the region that not only includes Kakadu National Park but also valuable mineral resources. It concentrates on the scientific evidence accumulated by researchers covering most aspects of the vegetation and landscape features. The book covers the natural features and plant diversity of the region along with controversial subjects such as fire, feral animals and weeds. As such, it is required reading for scientists and conversationists interested in these issues across the monsoonal landscapes of Northern Australia and elsewhere."--BOOK JACKET
