Booderee National Park Book

Discover why Booderee National Park is a special part of Australia’s natural heritage.

Booderee National Park at Jervis Bay, 200km south of Sydney, attracts over 450 000 visitors each year. The park has many special features, including dramatic wave cut platforms and sea caves, some of the whitest beach sands in Australia, and very high densities of native predators such as the Powerful Owl and the Diamond Python. This book outlines the biology and ecology of Booderee National Park.

Chapters are arranged around key ecological processes – predators and predation, herbivores and herbivory, invasive plants and fire – emphasising the interactions between species, between vegetation and animals, and between disturbances and animal and plant responses.

Richly illustrated with colour images from award-winning photographer Esther Beaton, this book will delight visitors to Booderee National Park as well as anyone with an interest in natural history.
