Tim Low's award-winning book about the way we interact with nature in our human spaces continues to challenge our perceptions of the environment and our interaction with it.

Winner of the NIB Waverley Award for Literature.

Forget about wilderness, Tim Low says, nature lives in our cities and gardens, exploiting everything we do. Many endangered species now live in industrial zones and cities. In our forests, native creatures have become pests. Fifteen years on, The New Nature continues to challenge the way we view the interactions between human beings and nature, and pushes us to review our relationship with Australia's wilderness.

      A quick appraisal and run down in changes in behaviour, distribution and the advantages or otherwise of coexistence with Humanity and how it effects Australian Flora and Fauna. The concept that an Australian plant or animal can be regarded as an exotic pest- Rainbow Lorikeets in WA will not sit well with the nature purists.
