Coastal Plants: Perth and the South-West Region
This item is out of print.
Coastal Plants is a guide to the plants that grow along the Perth coastline and on the islands between Dongara and Dunsborough.
There are descriptions of over 130 plant species, from seagrasses to the beautiful Boronia alata, from the mangroves of the Abrolhos islands to invasive Arum Lilies, from the giant Tuart eucalypts to beach spinifexes.
Each description yields a wealth of detail on the habits and peculiarities of not only the plants, but also some of the animal life that is associated with them.
Superbly illustrated with line drawings and watercolour paintings of each species, Coastal Plants is an important reference work on this diverse group of plants.
