Description

This new and thoroughly revised edition of Forest trees of Australia has been fully updated throughout and includes treatments of 72 additional species.

  • their environmental significance
  • their importance to the timber industry
  • their prominence in our landscape.

New maps and photographs show us a wonderfully diverse range of forests, from mangrove swamps, tropical regions and deserts, to alpine areas and majestic stands of temperate forests.

A colour section illustrates some of the major forest types of Australia and bark from a diverse range of species.
