Flora of Australia
Please note that the print run for each forthcoming volume of the Flora of Australia is quite small, and volumes rapidly go out of print. NHBS offers a Standing Order service for this series, this is ideal for botanists and libraries who want to ensure they obtain a complete set of volumes. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Flora of Australia series documents the families, genera, and species of flowering plants, conifers, ferns, mosses, liverworts and lichens of Australia and its oceanic islands. This landmark project will eventually comprise more than 60 volumes covering almost 30,000 species, systematically arranged by family.
Each descriptive volume summarises the current knowledge of 200 to over 600 species, providing descriptions of taxa at all ranks. Valuable keys aid identification of families, genera, species and infra-species. For each species, there are full Australian synonymies, along with distribution maps, bibliographic information, and notes ecology and variation. The volumes are richly illustrated in both colour and black-and-white.
"...in a comparative review of 24 floras the Flora of Australia was ranked 'among the very best' of floras worldwide."
Taxon, Vol 48, 1999.
