A comprehensive and authoritative guide to the identification, classification and biology of hebes, which are among New Zealand's best known native plants. These flowering plants are remarkably diverse and inhabit wild areas from the coast to the mountains. They are also popular garden plants around the world.
For each species, the book provides detailed information, photographs, and distribution maps. General chapters discuss evolution, reproductive biology, conservation, and other topics.
Mike Bayly and Alison Kellow have written many scientific papers on the classification and evolution of Hebe. The pair researched and wrote An Illustrated Guide to New Zealand Hebes while employed as Research Scientists at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. Currently, Mike is a Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne's School of Botany and Alison is a Research Scientist at Te Papa. They are married and live in Melbourne with their daughter Frances.
