Australia’s Four Billion Year Diary


Author: Reg Morrison

Reg Morrison has been photographing and writing about Australia, its people, plants and animals, for almost four decades, and in 1986 he was appointed an Associate of the Australian Museum in recognition of his work. During that period he authored three books on Australia, and one on the evolutionary origins of humanity’s massive impact on the global environment.

In this FANTASTIC book the life of our planet has been told in 12 calander months. Australia is the time capsule of planet Earth. The evolutionary story embedded in the continent’s rocks, in its fossil record, and in the genes of its modern plants and animals encompasses 95% of our planet’s lifetime.
