A Field Guide to Australian Trees has been reprinted numerous times and has become a classic guide. This third revised edition includes four additional species, and both the text and pictures of many other entries have been updated. The book covers more than 400 species, representing some 80 different genera. Better known groups like the acacias and eucalypts are well represented, but a special effort has been made to include a large number of species from australia’s diverse rainforest. Each entry includes notes on distribution, habitat, commercial use and horticulture, and a description of the tree’s key botanical features. The book is illustrated with over 150 colour photographs and numerous delicate line drawings.
