            There are 726 national parks in Australia. They cover 35,074,410 square kilometres of land, more than 4 per cent of the total area of the country. Australia revels in a rich diversity of habitats and environments, expressed no more beautifully than in our spectacular national par...ks. Each has its own distinct characteristics, such as striking limestone and sandstone rock formations, gorgeous beaches, beautiful scenery and a wondrous array of flora and fauna. Many parks are a refuge to animal and plant species harried into extinction, and cannot be found anywhere else across the world. Lose yourself in some of Australia's most remarkable wild areas as Australian Geographic take you through 50 of their favourite national parks.

            We are not alone: plants make up 80 per cent of the total biomass of Earth, while humans are only 0.0001 per cent. The forest is an intimate part of our lives and continues to play a central role in creating a liveable planet. From making the air we breathe and the climate tolera...ble to providing endless resources for shelter and food, forests have been with us for almost 400 million years and, despite our worst efforts, will be here after we have gone. Showcasing the work of leading nature photographers, The Life & Love of the Forest is a visual tour of our most remarkable woodlands. Bestselling author Lewis Blackwell takes us on a fascinating journey with evocative essays and insightful captions, exploring the developing science and curious histories of everything from microscopic life and the many animals through to the largest living things on the planet: the amazing trees that are the core engineering and architecture of the forest. Capturing the beauty of these magnificent and vital landscapes, this book celebrates the essential qualities of forests around the world while also promoting a future where humans and nature can coexist.
