Since early European settlement, Australia's climatic seasons have been based on the four-season model. Professor Entwisle advocates a system in line with the Australian natural environment - A five-season approach. Each season is described, along with the biological changes that define them. This book opens with the origins and theory behind the traditional European seasonal system and goes on to review the Aboriginal seasonal classifications used across Australia. Entwisle also explores climate change and how the seasons are shifting. (back cover)
