About this book

&i;Ernest Hodgkin's Swanland&o; is based on, and inspired by, the life and work of a man intrigued by the natural world. It is a synthesis of the results of many years of research on the estuarine environments from the Murchison to Esperance, Western Australia. Hodgkin's study of the estuaries was firmly grounded in the discipline of science, but he married this with best traditions of the naturalist and the historian.

Anne Brearley's more recent and widely sourced research has been grafted into Earnest Hodgkin's extensive body of work, providing a comprehensive guide for the conservationist, scientist, student, observer and visitor. It focuses on the individual estuaries: their history of formation, geography, geology, water-flows, plants and animals, and how these have changed since European settlement with increasing pressures of nutrient enrichment, urban development, fisheries, and the opening of sand bars.

The wealth of material in the book has been organised in an order and form that makes it readily accessible to a wide readership of varying ages, interests and expertise. It can be read in a number of ways, either by location, theme, or by reading the figure captions that link with the text. Additional background material on topics of relevance to multiple chapters in the book is presented in boxed text and cross-referenced to other sections.
