A comprehensive reference to all 402 rainforest tree species in Victoria and New South Wales, including some distribution extensions into Queensland. The text is written in a simplified botanical style and every species is illustrated with a detailed line drawing and its habit, bark, leaves, flowers, fruits, habitat, distribution, timber, uses and regeneration are all described. A key to enable rapid identification is based on ever-present botanical features such as trunk, branchlets and leaves. The introduction includes discussions on the classification of rainforest types, and the structure distribution and physiogomy of rainforests. This long-awaited second edition [first edition 1989] has been fully updated with new species, name changes and additional distribution information.
