Sydney's best-known and invaluable field guide to native plants is now in its third edition and completely updated. Refreshed by a new modern cover, this indispensable guide has been brought right up to date. It describes and illustrates over 1370 species. Information is given on the history, ecology, Aboriginal and European uses of each plant, together with references to literature and the journals of explorers. This field guide opens up Sydney's extraordinary rich flora to plant lovers, students, bushwalkers, gardeners and environmentalists, in fact to anyone who wants to identify a plant in the bush. 'I commend this book to all who would like to know our fascinating native plants better.' John Dengate

    Comments about Field Guide to the Native Plants of Sydney:

    I use this book regularly in my workplace where I need to know about Australia's indigenous plants. It was recommended to me by an eminent specialist in native plants. It is in black and white because drawings most accurately reflect a plant's definable characteristics better than photographs. I am referring to this book all the time. If you are looking for an excellent reference book that tells you all you need to know about identifying plants, as well as other interesting information, I would recommend it over any other book.

        Comments about Field Guide to the Native Plants of Sydney:

        I bought this plant book and realise it's black and white. It doesn't make sense for a plant book to be black and White. I then called back wondering if I can physically bring it back to swop to a colourful one. But it turned out I have to post it back. It's not making people's live easy. I definitely would not recommend it sorry.
