Biography

After working in a variety of technical jobs, including with the Forests Commission of Victoria and the Botany Department of the University of Melbourne, Ian Clarke was for many years employed in the plant identification service of the National Herbarium of Victoria. He transferred to a position as honorary associate there in 2003. He is the author and illustrator of a companion text, Name Those Grasses: Identifying Grasses, Sedges and Rushes, published by the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria in 2015. Between 1975 and 1990 he was associated with the Council of Adult Education in Melbourne as a tutor in flowering plant identification.

The late Helen Lee, Honorary Research Fellow in the Botany Department, La Trobe University, held a Master of Science degree from the University of Melbourne. After lecturing in botany for two years at Queen's University, Belfast, she was for many years a part-time tutor in the botany departments of Melbourne and La Trobe Universities, and a tutor with the Melbourne Council of Adult Education. Upon retirement, she took up a position as Honorary Research Fellow in the Botany Department, LaTrobe University. Her research interests included the morphological characteristics of plants that resprout after fire, and arid zone ecology. She was a member of the Royal Society of Victoria and the Australian Systematic Botany Society.

Their collaboration on this book brings together over thirty years of involvement in tertiary and adult education. Although they worked together throughout, Helen Lee was largely responsible for the text and while Ian Clarke is in charge of the figures.

Media reviews

"[...] this book is a real winner [...] Having provided the basic knowledge on plants, the rest of the book is made up of descriptions of the important characteristics of forty-six plant families chosen to provide a range of flower structures. [...] Not all of the species used as examples are native plants but this is no disadvantage and the emphasis is certainly on natives. [...] Other excellent features of the book are a comprehensive and useful glossary of botanical terms and a list of very useful references. In summary, this is a book which should be in the library of anyone who is fascinated by plants and wants to know more about them."
– Roy Skabo, Eucryphia (Journal of the Australian Plants Society Tasmania Inc.) Volume 24(2), June 2020
