There are 778 species included, both nature and introduced representing approximately one quarter of all the plants in the greater Perth region, and one-tenth of all species known for the south-west of Western Australia.

This Second Edition of this field guide contains 22 additional species and updated photography throughout. It is based on a previous work of the same title but is greatly expanded, incorporating information on an additional 285 plant species

About the Author

He is an Adjunct Lecturer at the University of Western Australia in the School of Plant Biology and a Research Associate at the Western Australian Herbarium. He grew up in the remote Kimberley region of northern Western Australia, developing an early passion for plants. An experienced taxonomist and photographer, his work has taken him to many remote parts of the state, discovering many new species of plants along the way.

Before this, he worked for 18 years with tropical plants in Singapore as Curator of the then Parks and Recreation Department and as Senior Research Officer at the Singapore Botanic Gardens and nature reserves under the National Parks Board. A keen photographer, traveller and experienced botanist, his work has taken him to many natural areas in South-East Asia and botanic gardens around the world.

Industry Reviews

"This book, like our flora, is a gem. Easily accessible, well laid-out and with informative but easy to understand text, you can use it on any ramble around Perth and chances are you'll be able to work out what plants you've found."--Kevin Thiele, Western Australian Herbarium, Department of Parks and Wildlife, Perth
