Description

This book provides a comprehensive coverage of Victorias superb native wildflowers with 840 colour photographs, mainly by Bruce Fuhrer, the outstanding botanical photographer. Some of the States rarest plants are included as well as many species which are widespread. The introduction gives a brief overview of the natural regions of the State with reference to National Parks and bushland areas known for their diversity and richness of flowering plants. The bulk of the book contains superb colour photographs of the flowering plants, the majority taken close up to display the details of individual flowers and leaves. There are brief plant descriptions, with notes on habitat and distribution, including occurrences in other States and overseas. The text is simply written with a minimum of botanical terms that are covered by an excellent glossary. Not since the publication in 1968 of Flowers and Plants of Victoria of which Bruce Fuhrer was a joint author, has such a wide selection of the States flora appeared in colour in the one volume. Only 50 of the plants illustrated in the book are confined to Victoria and the remainder are found in similar habitats in other States, making the book a useful reference work, particularly in adjoining areas of south-eastern Australia.
