Editorial Reviews

Review

"...stands up as the most up to date review of a subantarctic island available. It gives the reader a real sense of what the environment and biology of one of the most isolated islands in the world is like. I strongly recommend this book to all researchers of cold climate environments." John R. Spence, Arctic & Alpine Research

"Compared to what is known about most small, oceanic islands, this is an admirably complete treatment. The writing is clear and well organized, and the book is illustrated with good photographs and figures. In some ways, it sets a standard for books on islands." John C. Briggs, Quarterly Review of Biology

Book Description

Macquarie Island, a speck of land rising from the Southern Ocean about 1,000 km south-east of Tasmania, is a wild and beautiful place. Declared a nature reserve in 1933, the island is of immense scientific interest, providing scientists with an opportunity to study unique geological features and to examine the special characteristics of a southern island ecosystem.
