A comprehensive identification guide for weeds in the south-east region of Australia. This second edition has been fully updated and reorganised to recognise recent taxonomic changes and includes many new species and photographs, an expanded illustrated glossary and a completely new section using flower colour and shape as an aid to plant identification.

The book features over 2500 plant species including weeds of agriculture, bushland, waterways, gardens, roadsides, wasteland and amenity areas, and many new and emerging problem species. It is illustrated with more than 2000 photographs including spectacular close-up shots.

Written in easy-to-understand language and beautifully illustrated, this is a field guide for anyone interested in the identification of pest plants and the preservation of our native flora. An essential tool for community and government organisations, park rangers, weed officers and advisers, agronomists, landholders, horticulturists, landscapers, amateur naturalists and gardeners.
