*It's only natural: ecology in Australia*
Come on a fascinating journey into the world of Australian Natural History
as depicted in hundred year old books and rare manuscripts. Dr Dieter
Hochuli, ecologist from the University of Sydney and curator of the
exhibition 'Its only natural', will take us on a personalised tour of the
collection highlighting significant texts such as first edition books by the
man-of-the-moment - Charles Darwin.
Inspired by illustrations of creatures from new worlds, natural history
texts have fired imaginations for hundreds of years. The exhibition It's
only natural uses the University of Sydney's Rare Books and Special
Collections to track the emergence of ecology as a scientific discipline
from its foundations in natural history.
*Date*: Wedesday 22 April
*Venue*: Rare Books Library, Level 2 Fisher Library, The University of
Sydney, Camperdown, Sydney
