This book will allow anyone with little botanical knowledge to identify plants that they are most likely to encounter while walking in Victoria's High Country. The guide is written in plain English and includes a glossary of botanical terms.
Plants of the Victorian High Country contains species descriptions and photographs of plants to be found along popular walking tracks, such as Harrietville to Mt Feathertop and Mt Hotham. Plants of the montane, sub-alpine and alpine zones are included, sorted into five easily distinguished groups: herbs, daisy herbs, low woody shrubs, tall shrubs and trees, and eucalypts. The guide features straightforward identification keys and clear photos of the leaves, flowers and stems of the plant.
If you are a nature lover, planning to walk in the Victorian High Country, this book is an essential addition to your backpack.
