This practical field guide describes and illustrates in colour 90 common and widespread wetland plants found in Queensland, and gives a distribution map for each species. To assist those readers who are keen to learn more, the book includes a series of keys to help identify those species that are not illustrated in the book but which may be encountered in the field. The keys also help to identify closely related species. There is also a glossary of technical terms.
Creating artificial wetlands for the treatment of wastewater and rehabilitating wetland areas that have been disturbed by roads, bridges, mining, housing and other infrastructure developments requires the use of a range of plant species.
Wetland Plants of Queensland is an invaluable resource for all those involved in the reclamation of wetlands or the treatment of wastewater, including farmers, environmentalists and all those with an interest in wetland revegetation.
