Mighty River Red Gums
guardians of Australian Rivers
by Anne Jensen
About the Book
River red gums mark semi-permanent freshwater in the Australian landscape, lining rivers and streams in all states except Tasmania. Healthy red gum communities reflect the good health of their supporting river ecosystems. Anne Jensen shares everything she learnt about river red gums in her PhD study, including the habits and features of these beautiful and important trees and their amazing life history.
Ecologist Dr Anne Jensen combines her professional interest in wetlands and rivers with her personal interest in photography and history while visiting many interesting places. Her husband’s interest in clay target shooting takes them to international destinations off the beaten tourist track, and Anne explores and photographs the local natural and historical sites. Her books share her journeys of exploration and discovery, with evocative photographs which highlight the beauty of places visited, with a special interest in local wetland sites.
