It is intended that The Mistletoes of Subtropical Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria be used as both a reference and a field guide. It provides a detailed introduction to mistletoes and their biology and deals with all 46 species known to occur in Subtropical Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. Each species is illustrated by colour images supported by detailed plant descriptions, information on habitat and host plants. It also provides details of the 24 butterfly and 3 moth species that use various mistletoes as hosts.
"The Mistletoes of Subtropical Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria has an important role to play in not only providing a key reference on the mistletoe plants of the region, but also in providing current information on the importance and role of these much maligned plants in the various ecosystems. There is no other similar book with such detail available and it will be recognised as a key reference for landowners, councils and other levels of government, land managers, people working in the vegetation management industry, and people interested in the natural world."
– Glenn Leiper, Conservation Officer, Native Plants Queensland
