About this book

This is the first book on the general natural history of Tasmania in nearly a century. It is intended to provide an overview of the natural history of Tasmania, one of the most fascinating and pristine regions of the world.

Home of the signature Tasmanian Devil, Tasmania is a truly remarkable place for people interested in natural history. A relatively mild climate and abundant rainfall support lush vegetation and the mountainous terrain boasts awe-inspiring scenery, hills and valleys, nooks and crannies, rainforest and moorlands that harbour a suite of endemic plants and animals.

Biography

William E. Davis, Jr. is Professor Emeritus at Boston University after 38 years of teaching science. He is the author or editor of nine previous books and nearly 500 book chapters, professional and popular scientific articles, and reviews. He is an ornithologist who first visited Tasmania in 1990 to study its birdlife and fell in love with the region. He has returned to Tasmania seven times since then, prowling and probing every corner of the island in preparation for writing this book. He has logged thousands of kilometres by car, boat and small aircraft surveying the natural history of Tasmania, and countless hours in libraries reading the specialized works of others. The result is a book intended to foster a love of Tasmanian natural history.
