Flora of Australia Series
Australian Biological Resources Study
The Flora of Australia series documents the families, genera, and species of flowering plants, conifers, ferns, mosses, liverworts and lichens of Australia and its oceanic islands. This landmark project will eventually comprise more than 60 volumes covering almost 30,000 species, systematically arranged by family.
Each descriptive volume summarises the current knowledge of 200 to over 600 species, providing descriptions of taxa at all ranks. Valuable keys aid identification of families, genera, species and infra-species. For each species, there are full Australian synonymies, along with distribution maps, bibliographic information, and notes ecology and variation. The volumes are richly illustrated in both colour and black-and-white.
This series is co-published by CSIRO Publishing and the Australian Biological Resources Study.
In 2017, ABRS launched an online Flora of Australia platform, in collaboration with the Council of Heads of Australasian Herbaria and the Atlas of Living Australia. This project will not publish any further printed volumes.
