This book is the first to bring together extensive scientific learning on what makes a good farm for biodiversity. Based on thirteen years of intensive research, it breaks the discussion into chapters on key environmental and vegetation assets and then discusses how to make these assets better for biodiversity.
The work encompasses information on vertebrates and invertebrates on farms and their relationships with significant vegetation and environmental assets: woodland remnants, plantings, paddocks, rocky outcrops and waterways.
"What Makes a Good Farm for Wildlife?" is written in an engaging style and includes colour photographs and information boxes. It will be an important reference for landholders, hobby farmers, vineyard owners, naturalists interested in birds and other native animals, people from Catchment Management Authorities, natural resource managers and policy makers.
...a book that will inspire as well as educate land owners.

"The book provides sensible, practical ideas for managing and building up remnant woodlands, replanting native vegetation, improving habitat in established paddocks, making the most of rocky outcrops, and integrating vegetation along creeks and around dams, all of it based on sound scientific evidence."
