Summary It has long been held true that Australia has a 'dead heart' but now ecologist Dr Steve Morton declares war on this cherished belief. Many of Central Australia's varied landscapes are far greener and richer in animal and plant life than generally believed but despite this, at least half of the original mammal species have disappeared from the area over the last 120 years. What is the reason behind this major ecological disaster?
