Australian Succulent Plants
Australian Succulent Plants is an introduction to the beauty and diversity of Australian succulent flora.
A fresh change from conventional attitudes and ideas about the diversity and beauty of Australian flora.
With Australia’s natural flora of well over 20,000 species, at least 400 are considered to have a notable degree of succulence.
Many of the plants included are very poorly covered by general books (including encyclopaedias) about Australian plants. Each plant in this publication has short descriptions and clear photos showing the plants in habitat wherever possible.
While there are numerous highly technical scientific papers covering most of these native Australian plants, they are dispersed and difficult to access, especially for the general public. So this book has this information all together in an easy to read and use format, for both the professional and amateur enthusiasts.The most distinguishing features as well as all succulent parts of each plant are shown or discussed to help with identification.
Included are some of the most under appreciated, diverse, and interesting of Australian plants.
If this book achieves anything, it is to inspire others to learn, discover and explore more about the flora of Australia.
