Of curiosity to scholars and lecturers alike, this publication presents a much-needed synthesis of the hot literature at the environmental historical past of Australia and Oceania. Charting the production of the Australian continent from the traditional land mass of Gondwanaland to the coming of people, this publication maps out the main traits within the region's environmental history.

Especially interesting are the chapters highlighting how successive waves of human migration created environmental havoc through the area, resulting in the cave in of the Easter Island civilization and the unfold of nonindigenous wildlife. From the controversies over the explanations why creatures similar to the marsupial lion and the enormous kangaroo grew to become extinct to such modern difficulties as deforestation and worldwide warming, this publication includes sobering classes for us all.

The Offspring's Americana PDF

Очередная книга для любителей поиграть на нервах у родителей, для девочек во дворе, и так просто. . для себя. ..
Представлять вам группу The Offspring я не стану - нет смысла. У меня даже мысли в голову не пробираются о том, что кто-то может не знать этих музыкантов и тем более их альбом Americana, вышедший в 1998 году.
Альбом буквально за считаные мгновения стал супер-успешным. Кстати, он немного отличался (да и отличается теперь) от их остальных альбомов. Здесь они стебали уже не только хэви-метал, но и все музыкальные стили, которые им только удалось воспроизвести. В текстах появился какой-то юмор, но в большинстве своём они оставались такими же серьёзными и трагичными. Offspring'и производили впечатление весьма наивных провинциальных музыкантов, которые даже не понимают, насколько смешно они звучат. За это их и полюбило новое поколение реальных провинциальных подростков, звучавших так же смешно и мысливших столь же серьёзно.

Как и всегда партии голоса и гитары + табы. ..

One of the best examples of this phenomenon is found in the North Island of New Zealand where the line of the Pacific Plate sliding underneath the Indo-Australian Plate can be traced north to south through White Island in the Bay of Plenty, the thermal areas around Rotorua and Lake Taupo, the three volcanoes in the Tongariro National Park (Mount Ruapehu, Mount Ngauruhoe, and Mount Tongariro), and Mount Taranaki on the west coast. The extent of ancient volcanic activity in New Zealand is also illustrated by the remnant peaks of fifty or so volcanoes in the Auckland area (Hicks and Campbell 2003).
