About this book

Around 30 million years ago, the piece of land now known as Australia was in the process of splitting off from the Gondwana supercontinent. As the plates parted, there was a series of upward movements along what is now the east coast, which became a series of ranges and escarpments, with effects on climate and vegetation.

Of the 8 million hectares of rainforest in Australia in 1788, only 2 million hectares remain. Many of these are isolated fragments.
