Swanland is a synthesis of the results of years of research on estuarine environments from the Murchison to Esperance, Western Australia. This comprehensive guide for the conservationist, scientist, student, observer, and visitor focuses on the individual estuaries: their history, geography, geology, water-flows and how they changed with European settlement, the natural environment, plants, algal blooms, animals, fisheries, and pressures on estuaries from factors such as nutrient enrichment, development, and the opening of bars. Swanland is well illustrated with maps, figures, photographs, tables, and graphs to provide images and more detailed information.
