|Title:||Queensland's Threatened Animals||Contributor(s):||Curtis, Lee K (author); Dennis, Andrew J (author); McDonald, Keith R (author); Kyne, Peter M (author); Debus, Steve J S (author)||Publication Date:||2012||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/12477||Abstract:||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 book features up-to-date distribution data, photos and maps for most of Queensland's threatened animals. It also includes a comprehensive list of resources, with key state, national and international organisations involved in the recovery and management of threatened species.||Publication Type:||Book||Publisher:||CSIRO Publishing||Place of Publication:||Collingwood, Australia||ISBN:||9780643104570
