Associate Professor Dave Paton at the University of Adelaide launched his new book “At the End of the River, The Coorong and Lower Lakes” last weekend at the Adelaide Festival Writers Week.
From his unique perspective, ecologist David Paton examines the changes that have occurred in the Coorong and Lower Lakes since European settlement. He summarises research collected over thirty years on the different ecosystems that comprise these wetlands at the end of the River Murray. The book is enriched with personal accounts from twenty contributing authors who share a passion for this part of South Australia through their connection with the environment for recreation, scientific pursuit or livelihood. More than a guide to the region, this book will give you an understanding of the causes of the current crisis and possible solutions
The launch was well attended and followed by drinks at the University of Adelaide.
