About this book

This definitive work, 17 years in the making, covers the fruiting plants of Australia's tropical rainforest in Queensland extending from Rockhampton on the Tropic of Capricorn through to the Torres Strait. It identifies and describes 2,436 species of which 1,236 are illustrated in vibrant colour. Each species (except for a few which are leafless) is accompanied by a line illustration of its leaf as an aid to identification. The book has been divided into two sections, Gymnosperms (non flowering plants) and Angiosperms (flowering plants). For easy referencing, these sections have been laid out in alphabetical order of family, genera and species. This method of presentation is ideal for botanists or general readers who are interested in the fruiting plants of Australian tropical rainforests. There are keys to the families, genera and species and the meaning of every botanical name is explained.
