This field guide includes over 500 flowering herbaceous plants, trees, shrubs, ferns, grasses, sedges and their allies, illustrated with over 2000 colour photographs. For ease of use, the more conspicuous flowering plants are arranged by flower colour.
Two detailed sections on grasses and sedges are ordered by inflorescence structure, then by family, genus and species. Key identification features are listed, along with habitat, flowering period and local uses, tradtions and beliefs. A glossary is also provided.
