About this book

As Melbourne's urban sprawl continues, so the pressure on the remaining patches of bushland increases and the very regional survival of many indigenous plant species becomes threatened. This authoritative guide will enable interested people to identify the native plants which may survive in their neighbourhood. It identifies 252 species, mostly common, but also some which are rare. For each species the plant is described, the suburban range and overall distribution given, habitat and related species are discussed and their requirements for cultivation outlined.
