Author: Fanny Karouta-Manasse Australia's complex, beautiful and diverse flora is showcased in stunning botanic gardens across the continent. Through exquisite color photographs taken at the Australian National Botanic Gardens (ANBG), Fanny Karouta-Manasse celebrates the minute and intriguing details of these plants. Discovering Australian Flora explains how plants are displayed in the ANBG according to themes and provides clear and simple geographical, historical and botanical information. It also describes the unique features of Australian flora, including their reliance on fire and ability to survive in poor soil, and looks in detail at the two dominant genera in the Australian landscape - Eucalyptus and Acacia. This fresh and intimate view of some of Australia's native flora will serve not only as a companion to visitors to the ANBG but will also allow others to explore the wonders of Australia's botanical treasures. This book will appeal to both local and overseas readers wishing to become more familiar with Australian native flora.
