2011 Reprint with Updates & Addendums in glorious hard-cover with cloth-binding to stand the test of time and frequent consultation. The essential companion for gardener or landscaper interested in or growing plants of the Capricornia District of Queensland, Australia.

Plants of Capricornia fills a gap in available plant recognition and identification guides for Queensland, that of central coastal Queensland. The book uses the area defined as Capricornia to introduce the reader to a rich diversity of landscapes, vegetation communities and plant species.

It meets the needs and interests of a wide audience. Students and those unfamiliar with botanical literature will find a 'user-friendly' introduction to the language and concepts of plant taxonomy and classification including the meaning of scientific names and how to pronounce them.

Those for which plant identification is fundamental to their livelihood - environmental consultants, landscape regenerators, graziers, horticulturalists and staff from government agencies responsible for land management - will find Plants of Capricornia an invaluable resource describing and illustrating more than 600 native species including trees, shrubs, mistletoes, vines and herbaceous plants. Fifty weed species are described and photographed.

Information provided on the timber, fibre, medicinal, food and horticultural uses of the plant species, and their ecological values including use by mammals, birds and insects, will appeal to professional and personal interests alike. Plants of Capricornia will engender an awareness and understanding of, and fascination with, native plants and their role in natural systems and daily life.
