The Flowering of Australia's Rainforests provides an overview of pollination in Australian rainforests, especially subtropical rainforests. It also examines the plant-pollinator relationships found in rainforests worldwide. The Flowering of Australia's Rainforests progresses through introductory and popular sections that cover pollination in lore and legend; plant and flower evolution and development; and the role and function of colour, fragrance and form. Later chapters deal with breeding systems; mimicry; spatial, temporal and structural influences on plant-pollinator interactions; and a discussion and overview of floral syndromes. The book concludes with a section on conservation and fragmentation, and individual plant pollination case studies. Illustrated with colour photographs of major species, this reference work will be treasured by field naturalists, ecologists, conservation biologists, botanists, ecosystem managers, environmentalists, community groups and individuals involved in habitat restoration, students, and those with a broad interest in natural history.

The remote, beautiful and poorly known rainforests of Cape York Peninsula tell a special story about Australia’s historic and present-day connections to New Guinea. Life in the Cape York Rainforest highlights these connections by examining the fascinating biology of some of the most spectacular animals shared between the two regions. The author recounts his own ground-breaking research on ‘cross-dressing’ Eclectus parrots, musical palm cockatoos and multi-coloured pythons, together with the exotic lifestyles of other animals, while painting the bigger picture of the past when Australia and New Guinea were joined by extensive land bridges. Australia’s disconnection from New Guinea is probably only temporary, and even today many bird species continue to fly the short distance between the two landmasses. Whether just browsing the beautiful photos and informative captions, or reading it in its entirety, readers will gain a greater understanding of the unique attributes of our Cape York rainforests.

For more than twenty years Kaisa and Stan Breeden have lived in the rainforest of northeast Queensland and seen its wonders unfold. The rainforest is also where they developed and refined their photographic techniques. This book is their intimate and affectionate portrait of Australia's tropical rainforest and its variety of life. Using artistic and technical skills gained through many years' experience and experimentation, the Breedens continue their quest to capture nature as a contemplation. The mystery and beauty of the wet tropics are brought to life in this digital dossier of one of Australia's greatest natural treasures. As the Breedens explore the legacy of the Gondwana forests - the remaining strip of tropical rainforest between the Coral Sea and the Great Driving Range - their pictures and text join to evoke wonder and learning. The Breeden's inventive photographic techniques combine focus stacking, HDR and macro panoramas, creating visions of great depth, texture and clarity. Some subjects are the result of the combination of 25 or more photographs. Capturing the rainforest at its most vivid, this is an exceptional and uplifting exploration of Australia's tropical rainforest.
