About this book

From his unique perspective, ecologist David Paton examines the changes that have occurred in the Coorong and Lower Lakes since European settlement. He summarises research collected over thirty years on the different ecosystems that comprise these wetlands at the end of the river. The book is enriched with personal accounts from twenty contributing authors who share a passion for this part of South Australia thought their connection with the environment for recreation, scientific pursuit or livelihood.

Over 200 magnificent images depict the Coorong and Lakes in their many guises - from the life beneath the waters to the pelicans soaring high, from the wild ocean beach to the sheltered waters and rocky islands of the lagoons. More than a guide to the region, this book will give you an understanding of the causes of the current crisis and possible solutions.

The 2011 reprint has some corrections.
