Meet the Author
Join us for an evening with James Smith, author of Wildlife of Greater Adelaide, as he talks about the history and content of the book and shares some of the stories of the animals found within the book.
The Wildlife of Greater Adelaide is the most comprehensive wildlife book ever published about Adelaide. It covers the Mount Lofty – Kangaroo Island region, one of the designated 15 diversity rich areas across Australia. The book is over 450 pages with 11 chapters on identification including a list of 468 species and over 470 photographs collected over a two year period. There are chapters on worms, molluscs, crustaceans, arachnids, myriapods, insects, fishes, frogs, reptiles, birds and mammals.
“It’s embarrassingly and tragically easy to be unaware of the natural treasures that are right under our noses. With this easy-to-use book, residents of Adelaide and environs no longer have any excuses!”
