It concentrates on the scientific evidence accumulated by researchers covering most aspects of the vegetation and landscape features in a region that not only includes Kakadu National Park but also valuable mineral resources. The book covers the natural features and plant diversity of the region along with controversial subjects such as fire, feral animals and weeds.
