              The European maritime explorers who first visited the bays and beaches of Australia brought with them diverse assumptions about the inhabitants of the country, most of them based on sketchy or non-existent knowledge, contemporary theories like the idea of the noble savage, and an... automatic belief in the superiority of European civilisation.

              Step back to a time when Australia's red centre was flooded by a vast shallow ocean, the Eromanga Sea. While dinosaurs stalked the scattered islands that made up the Australian continent, giant marine mammals ruled the waves. Plesiosaurs and ichthyosaurs swam in an inland sea fil...led with schools of ammonites, pterosaurs flew overhead and giant carnivorous amphibians lurked in the rivers. Prehistoric Marine, the third in the Museum Victoria Nature series, is a guide to the fauna of the Eromanga Sea and its coasts during the Cretaceous period. This richly illustrated book brings to life yet another aspect of the fascinating world of Australia's prehistoric past and provides an accessible introduction to some of the amazing fauna, geology and fossils found in this part of the world.

              The Wasp and The Orchid: The remarkable life of Australian Naturalist Edith Coleman (EPUB ebook)

              By Clode, Danielle

              SHORTLISTED FOR THE NATIONAL BIOGRAPHY AWARD 2019'Have you met Mrs Edith Coleman? If not you must - I am sure you will like her - she's just A1 and a splendid naturalist.'In 1922, a 48-year-old housewife from Blackburn delivered her first paper, on native Australian orchids, to t...he Field Naturalists Club of Victoria. Over the next thirty years, Edith Coleman would write over 300 articles on Australian nature for newspapers, magazines and scientific journals. She would solve the mystery of orchid pollination that had bewildered even Darwin, earn the acclaim of international scientists and, in 1949, become the first woman to be awarded the Australian Natural History Medallion. She was 'Australia's greatest orchid expert', 'foremost of our women naturalists', a woman who 'needed no introduction'. And yet, today, Edith Coleman has faded into obscurity. How did this remarkable woman, with no training or connections, achieve so much so late in life? And why, over the intervening years, have her achievements and her writing been forgotten? Zoologist and award-winning writer Danielle Clode sets out to uncover Edith's story, from her childhood in England to her unlikely success, sharing along the way Edith's lyrical and incisive writing and her uncompromising passion for Australian nature and landscape.PRAISE FOR THE WASP AND THE ORCHID 'An engaging...vividly created window onto the life of an impressive woman and her times.' Sydney Morning Herald '[A] brilliant biography' Australian Women's Weekly'Danielle Clode breathes life into the story of Edith Coleman... an approachable blend of biography, science, nature writing and social history.'
