    schema:description ""The remote, beautiful and poorly known rainforests of Cape York Peninsula tell a special story about Australias historic and present-day connections to New Guinea. This book aims to highlight the connections by examining the fascinating biology of some of the most spectacular birds and other animals shared between the two regions. The author recounts his own ground-breaking research on cross-dressing eclectus parrots, musical palm cockatoos and multi-coloured pythons, together with the exotic lifestyles of other animals, while painting the bigger picture of the past when Australia and New Guinea were joined by extensive land-bridges. Australias disconnection from New Guinea is probably only temporary, and even today many bird species continue to fly the short distance between the two landmasses. The book uses the beautiful photographs of Michael Cermak and others to draw the reader in, and lively informative text to describe the remarkable behaviour of many of the rainforest creatures, and to emphasise the shallow and transient nature of Torres Strait as a barrier between Cape York and New Guinea. The book is aimed at anyone interested in the wildlife of northern Australia. Whether just browsing the beautiful photos and informative captions, or reading it in its entirety, this book will provide a useful guide for a greater understanding of the unique attributes of our Cape York rainforests"--Provided by publisher."@en ;
