[Extract] To the best of our collective knowledge, this book is the first time there has been a compilation of findings of long-term ecological research across many major ecosystems in Australia. The chapters provide a fascinating overview of some of the largest and/or most ecologically important ecosystems in Australia. They show how elements of the biota and environmental processes are changing over time, including in response to management interventions (e.g. vegetation restoration and invasive species control) and disturbance regimes such as fire, grazing and logging. In all chapters, there are new analyses and presentations of temporal trends that have not previously been published. These new insights, together with the detailed background on the natural and human-derived drivers of each ecosystem, means that the work reported here is a valuable resource for those wishing to begin to learn more about a particular ecosystem or recent trends in Australian flora and fauna. This resource was largely enabled by the establishment of the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (Box 14.1).
