This attractive, popular field guide to the plants of Stewart Island is at last back in print. It describes and illustrates more than 800 species, some in colour, and includes conspicuous "lower plants" such as mosses and seaweeds, as well as higher plants (trees, shrubs, herbs, ferns). The easy-to-use key and clear illustrations make this the definitive guide to the plants of Stewart Island. However, the book is also of enormous value to plant lovers elsewhere in New Zealand where many of the same species occur.
