About the book:

This set contains a wealth of information suitable for anyone who cares about the environment. For decision makers, there is an extensive range of essential background information and, where appropriate, guidance on options for dealing with issues. For students, its comprehensive treatment of a diverse range of topics makes it valuable for assignments. The text is the second independent national report on Australia's environment and heritage. The report covers every aspect of the environment, from the ocean depths to the stratospheric ozone layer, from Antarctica to living in the big city. It looks at arid Australia and the ways in which we use our scarce water resources, as well as exploring the state of our natural and cultural heritage and the ways in which modern land managers can learn from traditional land management skills. Seven detailed "theme" reports - atmosphere, biodiversity, coasts and oceans, human settlements, inland waters, land and natural and cultural heritage - guided the development of the 2001 SoE Report. The CD-ROM, which accompanies the 2001 SoE Main Report, contains the main report and the seven theme reports. The theme reports each use a set of environmental indicators developed to identify trends and chart responses to issues related to our environment.
