It is a day to celebrate the unique diversity and challenges of the tropics. James Cook University, as one of the two universities in Australia's tropical north, plays a key role in promoting a brighter future for the region, here and around the world. June 29th marks the anniversary of the State of the Tropics report, launched by Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi in 2014.
The JCU library holds the report in electronic and print versions, as well as many other books and journals relating to life in the tropics!
- The Ornaments of life: Coevolution and conservation in the tropics by Theodore H. Fleming and W. John Kress.
- In the tropics: Great houses, extraordinary lifestyles by Eugenie Navarre.
