Australia is fortunate to offer the fish enthusiast a wide variety of species, which live in a diversity of environments and display fascinating survival strategies.

This Wild Australia Guide outlines the unique characteristics of Australia's freshwater species, together with their diet and reproduction. Beautiful photographs assist with the identification of each fish. It would not have been possible however, without the ground breaking work of many scientists and researchers who publish their findings. Nor would it have been possible without the ongoing work of government agencies such as the Fisheries Departments of the various States and in particular the Murray-Darling Basin Commission, the Australia New Guinea Fishes Association (ANGFA), and many dedicated private individuals.

Included are notes on preferred habitat and favorite baits for landing each species. This 12-panel guide conveniently folds up in to a packet narrow enough to fit in a back pocket, glovebox, or tackle box yet sturdy enough to stand up under repeated use.

Politics And Development In A Transboundary Watershed

Water - and its governance - is becoming a global concern partly because it is turning into a goods in short supply, with devastating effects on literally billions of people, but also because it is the "carrier" ofglobal warming; whether through irregular weather patterns or through flooding, water is how global warming will be 'felt'. The lion's share of the globally available fresh water resources is to be found in transboundary systems. In spite of its significance, the generated knowledge on how to deal with transboundary waters is weak and leaves policy makers with seemingly unavoidable, trade-off dilemmas and prioritizations, often with detrimental effects. In order to disentangle this predicament this volume works with one case: the Lower Mekong Basin and covers state-of-the-art academic and practitioners' knowledge and hence appeals to a wide audience. The topic this volume addresses is situated in the nexus ofan IR- (International Relations) approach focussing on transboundary politics and its inclination to remain within the sphere of state sovereignty and national interest on the one hand, and Development studies, with its imperatives on participation, planning, and intervention, on the other.The dilemma, we argue, of better understanding transboundary water management lies in how to understand how these two rationalities can be simultaneously nurtured.
Audience: This book will be relevant to scholars, as it provides cutting-edge research, and students, since it covers the primary debates in the field, interested in resource management, regional politics, and development issues in the area. It also addresses the global debate on transboundary water management and presents an in-depth case of one of the globally most sophisticated attempts at pursuing sustainable river basin management. Finally, practitioners and policymakers would benefit greatly because all contributions have explicit policy relevance, launching suggestion on improvements in water management.

A Fresh Of Breath Air

An account of the hilarious mix-ups and misadventures that occur when a family abandons its everyday life and, metaphorically, jumps off the edge of a cliff into the unknown of a completely different life-style. Andrea and Ian Outen are townies, but have always dreamed of a life in the country. Winter evenings, since their marriage, have been spent dreaming of a rural life, away from the traffic, and hustle and bustle of their everyday lives in the town. Many years into their marriage, and now with four children, they find themselves, once more, sitting in front of their hissing gas fire and dreaming of a real fire of tangy apple logs. Once more, they commence their trawl through the pages of property papers, and this time they actually decide to view a few places in the countryside, just for the hell of it. Expecting this to be an expansion of the usual pipe-dream, Andrea sets off on their trip, expecting to find nothing to match up to her dream of rural paradise, and is completely bowled over, when they find exactly the right place, at almost the right price. This wasn't supposed to happen, was it? What would happen to all their lovely pipe-dreams? But the pace of events overwhelms her and, before she can catch her breath, they are en-route for, not just a new home, but a new way of life as well. This book chronicles the tale of their first year as 'turnips'; the highs and lows of a more self-sufficient life, and the profound changes this makes to them. Chickens and giddy goats make their appearance, as does a hunt for the local ghost; and life, in general, becomes much more interesting and unexpected.


Water Requirements For Irrigation And The Environment

RRP $491.99

Irrigated agriculture produces about 40% of all food and fibre on about 16% of all cropped land. As such, irrigated agriculture is a productive user of resources; both in terms of yield per cropped area and in yield per volume of water consumed. Many irrigation projects, however, use (divert or withdraw) much more water than consumed by the crop. The non-consumed fraction of the water may cause a variety of undesirable effects ranging from water-logging and salinity within the irrigated area to downstram water pollution.

This book discusses all components of the water balance of an irrigated area; evapotranspiration (Ch.2), effective precipitation (Ch.3) and capillary rise from the groundwater table (Ch.4). Chapter 5 then combines all components into a water management strategy that balances actual evapotranspiration (and thus crop yield) with the groundwater balance of the irrigated area (for a substainable environment). Chapter 6 presents CRIWAR 3.0, a simulation program that combines all water balance components into a single simulation procedure. The chapter describes the use of the CRIWAR software for developing water requirement tables and other useful information based on the selected water management strategy. This version greatly expands upon the capabilities of previously published programs.
