Now in its fifth edition, the phenomenally successful A Guide to Flowers and Plants of Tasmania has been in print since 1981. This beautifully illustrated guide has been extensively revised, with an additional 30 species, updated text and many new pictures, some of which are full page, adding even more vibrancy and interest to the book. It is an invaluable companion and reference for bushwalkers, tourists and all those interested in the Tasmanian countryside.
For ease of identification, each of the 300 species described is illustrated by one or more photographs. The text includes all the information necessary to help identify the plants: size, description, flowering time, appearance of the flowers and other parts of the plant, and the type of habitat where you may expect to find them. The book also includes an introduction to the vegetation of Tasmania, diagrams of leaf shapes and the parts of a flower, and a glossary of common terms.
