Like all six volumes of Australian Rainforest Plants, this volume II provides an attractive and easily understood reference for experts and beginners alike.
It contains over 100 species of rainforest trees, shrubs, vines, ground covers and epiphytes. Each species’ appearance, distribution and behaviour in the wild are described, as well as its use in the garden.
Further information is provided on edibility for humans and other organisms, Aboriginal usage, and suitability for timber or rainforest regeneration.
A superb colour photo illustrates the identifying features of each plant.
Special subject covered in Volume II: Growing a Rainforest, and Weeds
Additional subjects covered in the other volumes are: Gardening with Rainforest Plants (Book I), Rainforest Types (Book III), Disturbing Rainforests (Book IV), Rainforest Seeds & their Propagation (Book V) and the Right Rainforest (Book VI)
The books continue to be revised and reprinted and the first book has been continually in print since 1985. Many readers say these books have been their “bible” for information about Australian rainforests.
