Kosciuszko Alpine Flora: Field Edition
Describes and illustrates the area’s 212 flowering plants and ferns, of which 21 are endemic.
Around Australia’s highest mountain lies a rare ecosystem, an alpine area of outstanding beauty and diversity, strikingly different from other alpine ecosystems of the world but with common features.
Kosciuszko Alpine Flora describes and illustrates the area’s 212 flowering plants and ferns, of which 21 are endemic. It discusses the geological and human history of the area, the life-forms and habitats of the plants, and explores the various plant communities and their environmental relationships.
Ideal for the tourist or general interest reader, this field edition excludes the detailed taxonomic section.
This title is back in print, with limited stock available [due September 2017]
"Overall, this new edition should be essential reading for anyone contemplating a visit to our alpine regions"
Joe Barker (Trees and Natural Resources Dec 2002)
“Do yourself a favour’ and plan a trip – if not next year then soon. Go in the late summer and enjoy, but take either of these books with you. You will learn so much your enjoyment and appreciation of the area will skyrocket.”
Cherree Densley (Growing Australian March 2001)
“Perhaps the best book ever to describe the unique and internationally significant plants of the Australian Alps.”
Joss Haiblen (Australian Landcare March 2002)
