I signed off on the Yilliminning Rock guide today, and it may the prettiest one yet. I adore the painting-with-light starry image on the front. The skies in country WA are spectacular.
In it we look at remnant vegetation, discuss the now destroyed exfoliated rock which was the habitat of the once prolific rock dragon lizard and various lichen. We introduce kwongan sandplain/gravel country, and the way a large range of plants have changed the soil by controlling access to soil phosphorus.
Most importantly I think we have provided factual information about the destruction of the rock dragon lizard by 4WD vehicles. Doug and I present this information without being didactic or lecturing, and in the context of the other information about the biodiversity of the location it is compelling.
A great little feature of all the guides are the sightseeing tips, and they can be quite irreverent. This may be my favourite tip:
