About this book

Providing ecological and historical perspectives on the diverse, resilient flora and fauna that inhabit granite outcrops, this beautifully illustrated documentation explores Australia's diverse wildlife – including the closest relatives to Granitites intangendus, a shrub that thrives in southern Australia's harsh climate – revealing its origins in ancient rainforests that once covered the region.

"Anyone interested in the natural history of Western Australia will find this fine publication a must for their bookshelf."
