  1. Just Published: The Great Barrier Reef: An Environmental History

    From the Foreword by Professor Helene Marsh, Distinguished Professor of Environmental Science, James Cook University, Townsville, Australia

    "Through a meticulous analysis of archival materials, official sources, publications, photographs and oral history evidence, this book documents for the first time how the colonisation of Queensland and the resultant growth of primary industries have contributed to the decline of the Great Barrier Reef… It provides important historical evidence that demonstrates that the detrimental impacts of increased human population, urban development and agricultural expansion in the Great Barrier Reef catchment area will have to be ameliorated to increase the resilience of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area to the ravages of climate change."

  9. Sustainability: Prose and Poetry

    The works of textbook author Margaret Robertson (Sustainability Principles and Practice) and poet Howard W. Robertson focus on similar themes of sustainability, interconnectedness, and the biosphere. In this joint reading they illustrate how these ideas can be expressed in multiple ways using the language of prose and of poetry. The readers give an overview of the fundamental concepts on which this interdisciplinary field is built, offering the dual perspectives of scholarship and lyrical writing in service of its essential meaning.
