Description

This book is a unique and stunning guide to the beautiful wildflowers of Western Australia. Lavishly photographed in full colour throughout, it features photographs and brief descriptions of 755 species found in the popular southern region. Each species is cross-referenced to simple maps for quick and easy reference to localities. The introduction by Alex George gives a descriptive overview of the main vegetation regions of the state. The majority of species illustrated were found on roadsides, many in national parks and reserves, accessible by conventional vehicles. Wherever possible, technical botanical terms have been avoided except where precision or brevity necessitate their use; a glossary is provided to cover these terms.
