About this book

This book gives readers a colourful introduction to Tasmania’s marine flora, enticing them to appreciate the staggering beauty and diversity of these organisms. Written by Tasmanian Herbarium Honorary Curator of Algae, Fiona Scott, Marine Plants of Tasmania details the 169 species of seaweeds and seagrasses found in Tasmanian waters.

Much of Tasmania’s marine flora is unique within Australia, in part due to its geographic isolation from mainland Australia and the cool clear waters that bathe our shores. Examples of the flora included in the book have been selected from estuaries, rocky reef habitats, and kelp forests and readers. Plant descriptions in the book are written in plain language and are illustrated with colour photographs taken both underwater and using a light microscope. Included in the book are many species that are cast up on Tasmanian shores or grow in shallow coastal waters.
