Collingwood: CSIRO Publishing, 2012. Quarto, paperback, colour photographs, maps.
Hundreds of Australia's native animal and plant species have a threatened status in Queensland. In order to maintain and recover a healthy biodiversity serious problems faced by our natural environment must be addressed. These include habitat loss, inappropriate land management, change in fire regimes, pollution of natural resources, proliferation of invasive species and climate change. Featuring up-to-date distribution data, photographs and maps for most of Queensland's threatened animals, it also includes a comprehensive list of resources, with key state, national and international organisations involved in the recovery and management of threatened species. This book will be complemented by an open access website that will be updated on a regular basis.
