The first volumes of Eagle's Trees and Shrubs of NZ were published in New Zealand in 1975 to universal acclaim, and quickly became classic references for New Zealand botanists and plant-lovers. This long-awaited new edition brings Audrey Eagle's botanical artworks together for the first time in over 40 years, depicting every native tree and shrub. The books are full of new paintings, including 173 new species and subspecies, and bringing the total number of plants illustrated to more than 800. All plants are all depicted at life-size and include many detailed enlargements, showing all aspects of the twigs, flowers, fruit, nuts and flowers of each plant in technically superb detail. Comprehensive notes, drafted in consultation with expert botanists from around New Zealand, provide up-to-date botanical and identification information on every plant, including descriptions and notes on habitat, distribution, synonymy and nomenclature. An outstanding contribution to the study of botany in New Zealand and an essential addition to any library.
