In a handy portable format, Native Plants of the Sydney Region is the ideal companion for anyone who wants to put names to the plants they see in the bush. Covering an area from Newcastle to Nowra, and westwards to the Great Dividing Range, it contains plant species from remote areas as well as those common in remnant suburban bushland. Many of the species described are also found along the whole of Australia's east coast and west to the slopes and plains. It has been completely rewritten with descriptions of nearly 1400 plant species, some only recently discovered, as well as many new colour photographs and revised names in an up-to-date taxonomy.
