This book is the result of remarkable people, remarkable organisations and a remarkable community working together to produce a stunning contribution on the wildlife of the state of South Australia.
By population, Adelaide is a small city and South Australia a small state. Each of our scientific institutions lack the individual capacity to undertake the large and complex task of assembling and collating the material for a guide of this type.
However, James with his foresight, imagination, drive, determination and ability to create so many working partnerships, solved all the issues in unique ways and has delivered an outstanding product.
As a result, we can now identify our own animals, no matter how odd or obscure, and hence recognise the remarkable, unique, diverse and spectacular fauna that surrounds us.
