“Invaluable to beekeepers. Gives the blossoming periods of all trees which are attractive to bees. Every species of tree is illustrated with photographs, and with sketches of leaves, flowers, seed-pods, etc., to aid easy recognition. Includes indices of both common names and botanical names for easy reference. A handy guide for farmers and graziers in most parts of Australia, because it shows what types of tree are most likely to flourish in their area when planted for windbreaks, soil conservation, or drainage purposes.
Every species is completely described in non-scientific terms. A welcome gift for the amateur naturalist, and a useful quick reference book for botanists, conservationists, and everyone interested in the natural heritage of Australia.”
