The way we view the Australian landscape at the start of the 21st century is notably different to how we viewed it in the late 20th century, and Peter Kershaw has had a most significant role in this. One of the key elements to Peter s intellectual contributions lies in the discovery that the Australian landscape is more changeable and dynamic than was previously imagined, and in particular more deeply influenced by human history than we could have then known.
