Summary
  • Annotation. Since 1788, Australia has carried the yoke offour European seasons that make no sense inmost parts of the country. We may like them forhistorical or cultural reasons, or because theyare the same throughout the world, but they tellus nothing of our natural environment. It's timeto reject those seasons and to adopt a systemthat brings us more in tune with our plants andanimals!Sprinter and Sprummeropens with the origins andtheory of the traditional seasonal system, and goeson to review the Aboriginal seasonal classificationsused across Australia.Entwisle then proposes a new five-seasonapproach, explaining the characteristics of eachseason, along with the biological changes thatdefine them. His final chapter considers climatechange and how the seasons are shifting whetherwe like it or not.
