tm-flora-faunabook-smlTAMBORINE MOUNTAIN FLORA & FAUNA by Russell, Leiper, White, Francis, Hauser, McDonald & Sims is now on sale at local outlets for $15.

It is an excellent introduction to the natural history of this very biodiverse place – Tamborine Mountain, and follows on from the booklet published in 1988 (A Natural History of Tamborine Mountain).

The ten most important communities (regional ecosystems) on Tamborine Mountain are described with photos and include photos of unusual animals found in each.

Tamborine National Park has a number of sections on the mountain and readers are introduced to these, their locations, and the regional ecosystems that they encompass.

As a scientific study the book is the definitive description of the flora and fauna of Tamborine Mountain based on observations and more than 50 surveys over the past few decades. This data is in appendices for the benefit of scientists.  For the general reader they are there simply for reference.

The authors include top experts in flora and fauna identification.

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
