Focuses on the interactions between people, sheep and nature in Tasmania. It addresses the relationship between production and conservation in natural landscapes grazed by sheep and examines potentially effective pathways to maintain conservation values in a production context that meet the economic needs of wool-growing communities.
"People, Sheep and Nature Conservation" presents an understanding of how wool-growing evolved; the ways in which graziers utilise and value their runs within their enterprises; how sheep, under different management regimes, affect natural values; and the cultural, social and political values of wool growers and conservationists, and reconciliation of these values. It covers environmental geography, disturbance ecology, environmental history, cultural ecology, political ecology, social geography, rural sociology and economic geography.
