Australian Rainforest Fruits A Field Guide
This beautifully illustrated field guide covers 504 of the most common fruiting plants found in Australia's eastern rainforest, as well as a few species that are rare in the wild but generally well known. These spectacular plants can be seen from Cape York to Victoria, with some species found in the Northern Territory, Western Australia and overseas. Rainforest fruits are beautifully coloured, and in this guide the species are arranged by colour of ripe fruit, then by size and form. Five broad categories - pink to purple, blue to black, yellow and orange to red, green to brown, and white - allow people with even limited botanical knowledge to identify rainforest fruits. Each species description is accompanied by a leaf drawing, a distribution map, and diagnostic characters to help the reader distinguish similar species. Australian Rainforest Fruits: A Field Guide includes stunning artwork by Australia's leading natural history artist, William T. Cooper. It will be sought not just
