Hidden Rainforests: Subtropical Rainforests and Their Invertebrate Biodiversity
Study first published in 1993 of the biotic diversity, biogeography, plant-animal interactions and the impact of forest fragmentation in the subtropical rainforests of the Manning catchment area on the north coast of New South Wales. The examination of rainforest ecology relates to all subtropical rainforest communities in Australia. Vertebrates, invertebrates and the major plant associations of the area are detailed. Includes nearly 200 colour photographs, a bibliography, index and appendices and lists for the specialist. The author is a field biologist who has spent many years investigating the Manning catchment area. He is a research associate of the Australian Museum and currently undertaking his doctoral research study on the pollination ecology of lowland rainforests.
