Queensland's Threatened Animals.

Curtis, Lee K et al.

Picture of Queensland's Threatened Animals.
Queensland is home to 70% of Australia's native mammals (226 species), over 70% of native birds (630), just over half of the nation's native reptiles (485) and native frogs (127), and more than 11,000 native plant species. Hundreds of these have a threatened status in Queensland. Queensland must address the serious problems faced by its natural environment - habitat loss, inappropriate land management, change in fire regimes, pollution of natural resources, proliferation of invasive species and climate change. This comprehensive and practical guide features up-to-date distribution data, photos and maps for most of Queensland's threatened animals. From the CSIRO.

Description

Queensland is home to 70% of Australia's native mammals (226 species), over 70% of native birds (630 species), just over half of the nation's native reptiles (485) and native frogs (127), and more than 11 000 native plant species. Hundreds of these have a threatened status in Queensland. In order for Queensland to maintain and recover a healthy biodiversity we must address the serious problems faced by our natural environment - habitat loss, inappropriate land management, change in fire regimes, pollution of natural resources, proliferation of invasive species and climate change. This comprehensive and practical guide to Queensland's threatened animals features up-todate distribution data, photos and maps for most of Queensland's threatened animals.
