Temperate rainforests of western and northeastern Tasmania, mainland Australia
(New South Wales, Victoria), and New Zealand, collectively referred to as Australasia
throughout this book (see figure 8-1), are restricted primarily to coastal
areas of latitudes 39.5 to 43.5°S latitude. These rainforests are valued for their
beauty, mystery, and spirituality by nearly all Australians and New Zealanders,
having been globally recognized by scientists, bureaucrats, and nongovernmental
organizations for outstanding universal significance according to a wide variety
of tests of the forests’ importance.
