A bush capital year; a natural history of the Canberra region.


A bush capital year; a natural history of the Canberra region.

Fraser, Ian and Peter Marsack.



218 pages




Fraser, a natural history tour guide and conservationist who has lived in Canberra since 1980, introduces the wildlife and plants of the various habitats of the Australian Capital Territory in this color-illustrated work celebrating the biodiversity of the region. The book is organized by the 12 months of the year. For each month, 10 brief stories give insight on various species of the region's three major habitat types: woodland grassy plains, coastland mountain forests, and alpine environment. The stories integrate information on human history and natural history of species; some stories are written from the point of view of a human observer and some from the perspective of the plant or animal. Each story includes a color illustration, sometimes a full page, by Marsack, a natural history artist and illustrator. Distributed in the US by Stylus.
