Annotation

Describes and illustrates 504 rainforest plants from eastern Australia, with stunning colour artwork.

Publisher Description

This beautifully illustrated field guide covers 504 of the most common fruiting plants found in Australia's eastern rainforests, as well as a few species that are rare in the wild but generally well-known. These spectacular plants can be seen from Cape York to Victoria, with some species also found in the Northern Territory, Western Australia and overseas. Rainforest fruits are often beautifully coloured, and in this guide the species are arranged by colour of ripe fruit, then by size and form. Five broad categories - pink to purple, blue to black, yellow and orange to red, green to brown, and white - allow people with even limited botanical knowledge to identify rainforest fruits.
