An attractive and accessible guide to identification and appreciation of the native flora of the arid region of Western Australia, this revised edition of Arid Shrubland Plants of Western Australia now describes over 200 herbs, grasses, shrubs and trees.

Each species is illustrated in colour, and the non-technical text gives vegetative and floral characteristics, habitat, forage value, the response to grazing and, where appropriate, the value of plants for degraded land and mine site rehabilitation.

The only book of its kind, Arid Shrubland Plants of Western Australia is an important resource for pastoralists, mining companies, geologists, shire councils and native tree growers, and will also appeal to travellers and lovers of the Australian bush.
