This volume combines the output of almost 15 years of research by biological and physical scientists in World Heritage area in the isolated north of Australia. It concentrates on the scientific evidence accumulated by researchers covering most aspects of the vegetation and landscape features in a region that not only includes Kakadu National Park but also valuable mineral resources. The book covers the natural features and plant diversity of the region along with controversial subjects such as fire, feral animals and weeds.
