Summary
In 1942, Edith Coleman was at the height of her career. Internationally lauded as one of Australia's leading amateur naturalists, she was also a nature writer who 'needed no introduction'. Edith wrote prolifically, not only for scientific journals, but also for newspapers and magazines. Her academic peers praised her insights into the mysteries of pollination, but her interests ranged far and wide across Australian flora and fauna. She was the first woman to be awarded the Australian Natural History Medallion for her work, yet today she is almost entirely forgotten, save by a handful of scientists and naturalists. For over twenty years, zoologist and author Danielle Clode has pursued Edith. Here she presents Edith's story, for the first time: the remarkable life of one of Australia's foremost female naturalists
