Australia enjoys a vast array of unique and fascinating plants, that are not only vital to our world, but provide a spectacular environment. This Wild Australia Guide features up-to-date information on the state of our native plants and the importance of their future for all creatures. From ancient cycads to the soft and beautifully coloured, national icon the gum tree, and to carpeted deserts of rainbow-hued wildflowers after rain - Australia's plant life really is stunning. This practical field guide opens the door to a magnificent world - not only enabling the reader to recognise plants by reference to the superb photographs, but offering information about habitat, ecology, propagation and the oft co-dependent relationship with some animals. Also highlighting their conservation status and the fragile balance between plant, animal, Earth and us!
