Summary
The report provides an overview of Australian environmental change over the past 100 million years. the first section covers the history of changes in the natural environment from a time of plesiosaurs and ancient platypuses, to the commencement of British colonisation in 1788. It includes the archaeological evidence of the history of Aboriginal Australia and the relationship between Aboriginal people and the Australian environment over the last 60,000 years. The second section covers the period from European settlement through to the present by sketching the major themes in human settlement and economy in each of a set of periods since 1788. It links the economic history with an outline of the main trends in relationships between humans and the Australian environment over this period
