Life in the Tall Eucalypt Forests pulls back the curtain on one of Australia's most magnificent tall eucalypt forests, that of Victoria's Central Highlands. The beautiful photographs of the animals and plants that live there are accompanied by captions that tell the story of how this community works together. Intricate webs of dependency have evolved among the inhabitants and these are held together in a delicate balance. The images and text explore the harmony in which these living things co-exist and help the reader to understand how an entire dynamic ecosystem is able to maintain its health, and how human activities such as logging can threaten that health.
