“This book treats 151 plant species capable of poisoning animals.  These plants are either native or introduced and, in some cases, have been cultivated.  Clear line drawings illustrate 140 species and there are 380 supplementary drawings of flowers, fruits and/or habit of the plant to allow identification of the species.  Plants are grouped according to their growth habit and the signs produced by the different poisons.  The index includes both popular and botanical names.  Graziers and students can use this book to identify plants suspected of poisoning and can refer to the text for information on the species of animals affected, the type of poison involved, the signs of poisoning, the treatment and any preventative measures to be taken.”
