Weed management across sweeping plains

IMG_9244_colourI’ve made a small contribution to the recently published book, Land of Sweeping Plains. The focus of this edited volume is the restoration and management of the native temperate grasslands of south-eastern Australia. It seeks to be much more than a prescriptive textbook, containing a high density of colour photographs, some poetry and artwork, and a discussion of social context and connection.
