Abstract: Rural Land Degradation in Australia examines the degradation of Australia's ecosystems, the problems associated with the increasing use of synthetic chemicals, and the direct and underlying causes of land degradation. It also looks at broader social and economic implications, and places the nature of the overall problem in its global context. The final chapter evaluates some solutions to the range of problems identified. Students of geography, agriculture, environmental science and rural planning, along with anyone interested in an objective appraisal of land degradation, will find this an engaging, accessible and informative book.
