For botanists, ecologists and serious tree lovers ‘Forest Trees of Australia’ is the essential reference for observing, identifying and obtaining information on the native trees in this country. It describes and illustrates over 300 of the most important indigenous trees, which have been carefully selected for their environmental significance, their importance to the timber industry, or their prominence in the landscape.

This new and thoroughly revised edition has been fully updated throughout and includes treatments of 72 additional species. New maps and photographs show a wonderfully diverse range of forests, from mangrove swamps, tropical regions and deserts, to alpine areas and majestic stands of temperate forests. A color section illustrates some of the major forest types of Australia and bark from a diverse range of species.

Forest Trees of Australia is an unsurpassed guide to identification for horticulturists, botanists, foresters, students, farmers, environmentalists and all those who are interested in Australian native trees.
