Perth Plants Edition 2
A Field Guide to the Bushland and Coastal Flora of Kings Park and Bold Park
Perth Plants provides a comprehensive photographic guide to all plants known to occur in the bushlands of Kings Park and Bold Park. There are 778 species included--both natural and introduced--representing approximately one quarter of all the plants in the greater Perth region, and one-tenth of all species known for the south-west of Western Australia.
This second edition of this field guide contains 22 additional species and updated photography throughout.
* This is one of the most detailed field guides available for south-west Western Australia, with species presented in their most current scientific classification.
* With multiple photos per species, the book provides a relatively easy means of identifying both native and naturalized species in the Perth region and beyond.
* Small enough to fit in a backpack for field use, but detailed enough to provide a solid identification tool, this is a very practical field guide.
"This book, like our flora, is a gem. Easily accessible, well laid-out and with informative but easy to understand text, you can use it on any ramble around Perth and chances are you'll be able to work out what plants you've found."Kevin Thiele, Western Australian Herbarium, Department of Parks and Wildlife, Perth
