A Natural History of Australia

by Tim M Berra
San Diego, CA: Academic Press, 1998. 256 pages.

This beautifully illustrated guide to Australia's geology, flora, and fauna includes not only explanations of the evolution of the continent and its inhabitants, but a natural history of the Great Barrier Reef, discussions of paleoanthropology and Aboriginal culture... even a glossary of Aussie slang! (Berra has also written Evolution and the Myth of Creationism.)
