The Australian Green Guides have been created for wildlife enthusiasts of all ages.

The most commonly asked questions are answered with particular emphasis on fascinating behavioural insights into both common and unusual creatures. The pages are alive with entertaining and informative text accompanied by exciting action photography.

Parrots are colourful and conspicuous and capture the imagination of bird observers and visitors to Australia. This text explains how to distinguish one from another and presents some of the details of their lives and behaviour. Covering all of the parrot species in Australia, the book is organized into six sections - the cockatoos, the lorikeets, the grass parrots, the rosellas, offshore parrots and other parrots.

Information is organized simply, with individual species entries describing key characteristics such as where they are found, food requirements and behavioural habits. Each entry is accompanied by colour photographs and, where appropriate, distribution maps.

A key feature of the text is the "gee whiz" section which answers many of the most commonly asked questions about why parrots do what they do, revealing interesting facts and providing practical information for the amateur enthusiast. In addition, fact panels interspersed throughout highlight surprising snippets of information.

This global guide to the world's top dive sites is an inspirational reference source for divers who wish to experience, personally or vicariously, the best diving the planet has to offer. Written by the experienced dive authors of New Holland's award-winning dive guides, the book is based on first-hand experience.

Contributing Editor Jack Jackson has fully updated this third edition, adding some new wreck dives and making sure that all the travel and dive information is fully up to date. This includes new locations for hyperbaric chambers treating 'the bends' and the latest travel advice for divers in the wake of increased security at airports, which can make travelling with diving equipment problematical.

Conservation issues are more relevant now than ever, and Jack has ensured that the latest concerns and advice are included. Structured by oceans and seas, each section starts with a general overview of diving-related features and conditions. A large scale map shows the basic ocean topography and locates the featured dive regions to follow, while regional maps feature specific dive sites to help divers select and locate the type of diving experience they are looking for.

For those inspired to travel to any of the featured sites or regions, an appendix lists travel and dive information, climate, the best time to go, contacts, dive operators and emergency facilities. In addition to comprehensive mapping, the book features superb underwater photography showing famous wrecks, a wide range of marine habitats and a huge diversity of species ranging from whale sharks to coral.
