* A comprehensive record illustrating and describing the great array of plants in Western New South Wales. Plants of Western New South Wales was originally published in 1992 and grew from the expertise which the authors acquired during their employment in the arid and semi-arid pastoral areas of the State. Each author became aware of the need for a comprehensive record illustrating and describing the great array of plants in the area. The need was identified both for people involved in research and advisory services, and particularly for the landholders who need to manage the plants for their livelihood. The book is a landmark because it draws together all of the existing knowledge of plants from the area, adds to it the extensive collections and research of the authors and presents the whole as a comprehensive collation and description of the plants of the dry pastoral portion of the State. This edition will be reprinted and published by CSIRO Publishing with a one page appendix giving website addresses of various herbaria in Australia where the reader can readily access up-to-date information on botanical name changes. Key Features: * Describes 2027 plants recorded from western NSW * Contains color photographs of approx. 1500 species * Individual descriptions provide not only a description of each species in layman's terms but details of pastoral value, poisonous properties, distribution and flowering/seeding data

    Comments about Plants of Western New South Wales:

    This is a must have if you have any interest in the plants in your environment. Although focused on Western NSW is applicable to many other semi arid areas.
