How a Great Forest Recovers After Wildfire
This book tells the story of ecological forest recovery in the wet forests of Victoria following the major wildfires of February 2009. It also focuses on the science of ecological recovery – a major body of information that is not well known or understood by the vast majority of Australians and the vast majority of environmental policy makers.
Forest Phoenix presents this important story via short engaging text and truly spectacular images, which are accompanied by highly informative captions. If you’ve ever wanted to better understand how forests and forest biodiversity recover after wildfire, then this book is a must-read.
"It is informative, authoritative, comprehensive, accessible and almost as enjoyable as a ramble through these forests themselves."- The Victorian Naturalist
