About this book

One of the first three titles in an exciting new series of concise field guides. This is the ultimate keep-in-your-pocket field guide to Australian wild flowers, measuring a mere 90 × 120 mm. It may be diminutive in size but it punches well above its weight in terms of usefulness, being packed with more than 250 images of many of the species most likely to be encountered in Australia.

For each of the species accounts there is a photograph for identification and a brief written account listing the height of the plant, the key identification featutres of the leaves and flowers, range and habitat, and the main flowering period.

The book covers all of the most common and widespread species likely to be encountered in Australia including banksias, grevilleas, bottlebrushes, peas and orchids.

The easy-to-use layouts and small size make it ideal for taking on days out or walks in the bush. It is ideal for beginners or flower enthusiasts of an intermediate level, and also for children as a first book on wild flowers.
