“This is a book that everyone from the budding gardener to the knowledgeable botanist will find informative, encouraging and helpful.  The language is simple without being patronising, and the main characteristics of each genus and species described are clearly and concisely depicted.
The book is designed specifically for easy reference.  It is laid out in alphabetical order with indexes of both common and botanical names, and a glossary of scientific terms.  Every genus included is accompanied by vibrant coloured photographs of at least one species plus sketches of leaves, flowers, sed pods etc.  The text comprises general facts about the genus and is developed with examples of particular species in the genus with descriptions of their phyllodes, fruits, flowers, and their necessary environments.”
