630 beautiful colour plates of native flora
Both aesthetically and factually, this is a book which merits the attention of all discerning nature lovers. It is without a doubt one of the most useful and splendid contributions made to the botanical literature of NZ. The book has 630 colour plates accompanied by the scientific, common and Maori names of the plants and informative captions. Seperate chapters describe the general groupings of the flora in more detail, with cross-references to the plates.
The plants are presented in sections according to habitat - seaside plants, coastal plants, forest plants and so on - so that the book becomes a useful field guide, providing identification and descriptions of plants found as well as information on others likely to inhabit the same environment.
