Marleston: J.B. Books, (2005. reprint). Octavo, paperback, colour photographs, text illustrations, maps.
This guide provides the traveller with a guide to the landscape, plants and animals that will be seen along the main tourist routes of The Centre. From Alice Springs, west to Kings Canyon, south to Uluru (Ayers Rock) and into the dunes of the Simpson Desert, the main habitats are described in detail - to explain not only what, but why a certain plant or animal is found where it is.
The combination of striking photography and road maps which also show which habitat you are driving through at a given time, gives a deeper understanding of how raw geology moulds the landscape into patterns of topography, soils and vegetation. Species descriptions of the commonly seen plants and animals cover birds, reptiles, arthropods, mammals, trees, shrubs and groundcovers.
