Issue Sixteen

Another season has come- with the Equinox on the 21st, the South now moves into autumn. Don’t believe any of that talk of the official start to the season on the 1st of the month – the season changes on the 21st at the Equinoxes and Solstices.

In recent days, Tasmania has just completed a State Election, and as the political landscape changes abruptly, so too we may find the physical geography of the land will change as well.

There’s four wonderful articles waiting for you in this issue, including a year’s retrospective video of microcopter flights, a novel student research study on leeches and thylacines, a collection of technically superb cave photographs, and an introduction to a fearsome marsupial carnivore.

I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed preparing them.

Enjoy!
