About the Author

David Lindenmayer is a Research Professor at The Australian National University who has specialised in established large-scale, long-term ecological monitoring and research programs that have extended for more than 35 years in many different parts of south-eastern Australia.

Professor Gene Likens is one of the world's most highly decorated scientists and widely recognised for his pioneering and ground-breaking work on acid rain in north-eastern USA.
