The remote, beautiful and poorly known rainforests of Cape York Peninsula tell a special story about Australiaa€™s historic and present-day connections to New Guinea. Life in the Cape York Rainforest highlights these connections by examining the fascinating biology of some of the most spectacular animals shared between the two regions. The author recounts his own ground-breaking research on a€˜cross-dressinga€™ Eclectus parrots, musical palm cockatoos and multi-coloured pythons, together with the exotic lifestyles of other animals, while painting the bigger picture of the past when Australia and New Guinea were joined by extensive land bridges. Australiaa€™s disconnection from New Guinea is probably only temporary, and even today many bird species continue to fly the short distance between the two landmasses. Whether just browsing the beautiful photos and informative captions, or reading it in its entirety, readers will gain a greater understanding of the unique attributes of our Cape York rainforests.Although the book idea was born in that first meeting, it took another chance encounter in 2006 for us to make it into a reality. Many people helped over the long years of the Eclectus parrot research and played major roles in our other projects in the Cape York rainforest. ... kind in letting us use King Park as our research base, and Kevin Cameron built our wonderful accommodation (a#39;the humpya#39;).
