The Wetlands of Queensland book is the product of a multi-year collaboration between the Department of Environment and Science and the Queensland Museum.

It shows the variety, beauty and complexity of the wetlands in Queensland, and how the plants and animals within them have evolved to thrive in the vastly different climate zones and landscapes within the state.

At nearly 450 pages, this richly illustrated publication includes more than 500 sensational images from all parts of Queensland — from seagrass and sandflats at the tip of Cape York, to the spectacular waterfalls of the Gondwana Rainforests, and west to the vibrant yellow lakes at the fringe of the Simpson Desert.

Almost 30 authors with expertise in various aspects of wetland ecology contributed to the text, to help readers understand why wetlands are such a critical component of our environment, and the many ecosystem services they provide.

Wetlands of Queensland is now available through the Queensland Museum Shop and is perfect for lovers of natural history, environmental science or landscape photography.
