About this book

This visually superb and informative field guide is the second volume of Flora of the Otway Plain and Ranges, and covers more than 480 species of Daisies, Heaths, Peas, Saltbushes, Sundews, Wattles and other shrubby and herbaceous Dicotyledons. The illustrated family key is unique and covers 75 families and over 200 genera. Each species is illustrated and labels provide a clear key to identification for botanists and amateurs alike.

The Otway region of Victoria, with its temperate rainforests, mountain ash forests, heathlands, plains and coastal dunes, has an extraordinarily rich and diverse flora.

From the Foreword:

"Beautifully illustrated and elegantly laid out to enable the user to easily find and identify plants in the field [...] this book will raise awareness of the diversity and beauty of our native flora."
- Professor David Cantrill, Chief Botanist and Director of Plant Sciences and Biodiversity Division, National Herbarium of Victoria, Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne
