Grasslands are by far the most important face of recent Australian history

James Boyce is an honorary research associate at the University of Tasmania’s Centre for Environmental Studies. He is the author of “1835: The Founding of Melbourne and the Conquest of Australia” andVan Diemen’s Land”
James is a Tasmanian based author who has a clear understanding on the productivity and food value of native grasslands. James clarifies how quickly people arriving in Tasmania were able to ‘live off the land’. His insight into this is in contrast with our belief on how hard it was for people arriving around Sydney cove.

At the conference, James spoke in detail about the productivity and food value of native grasslands.

In this clip, James stated that the native grasslands provided the 1st setting for recent Australian history and this is often distorted with a focus on forests and the coastland.
