"In the eight years since the release of the first edition there has been much ongoing study and analysis of plants, both in Tasmania and worldwide. This has resulted in a number of changes to classifications at family, genus and species level and I have endeavoured to update the information accordingly. Nomenclature is up-to-date as recorded in 'A Census of Vascular Plants of Tasmania', 2012 edition, which follows the system used by Cronquist (1981) and is how the botanical collection at the Tasmanian Herbarium is arranged."--Preface to 2nd ed.

Bright Green and Gold offers a concise summary of the natural history of the Tasmanian alpine environment, a region that continues to attract huge numbers of ecotourists each year and that contains some of the most notable scenery in Australia. There is global interest in its unique andspectacular biological features, as confirmed by David Attenborough's inclusion of some of its plants in a recent documentary. No such guide for lay readers has been available. Jamie Kirkpatrick, the noted conservation ecologist, joined with Georgina Davis, who has provided 78 high-quality linedrawings, and the late photographer Peter Dombrovskis, who died recently taking photographs on one of these mountains. Dombrovskis' 24 sumptuous photographs are a testament to his art and to the immense natural beauty of the region.The mountains of Tasmania possess an unusual alpine vegetation, largely dominated by floriferous or coniferous shrubs, and a flora with strong affinities to those of the other southern lands (although half the species found in the latter are confined to Tasmania). Bright Green and Gold celebratesthe Tasmanian high country in three ways. It provides a minimally technical account of contemporary knowledge of the ecology and plant geography of the vegetation and flora of the mountains, this account being focused on those areas in which tree growth is absent. It provides a guide to the majorplant communities of the vegetation type and, finally, serves as an aid to the identification of the more than 400 vascular plant species that occur in the alpine zone.

This 2001 book provides a selective annotated bibliography of the principal floras and related works of inventory for vascular plants. The second edition was completely updated and expanded to take into account the substantial literature of the late twentieth century, and features a more fully developed review of the history of floristic documentation. The works covered are principally specialist publications such as floras, checklists, distribution atlases, systematic iconographies and enumerations or catalogues, although a relatively few more popularly oriented books are also included. The Guide is organised in ten geographical divisions, with these successively divided into regions and units, each of which is prefaced with a historical review of floristic studies. In addition to the bibliography, the book includes general chapters on botanical bibliography, the history of floras, and general principles and current trends, plus an appendix on bibliographic searching, a lexicon of serial abbreviations, and author and geographical indexes.

The European Garden Flora Flowering Plants

The European Garden Flora is the definitive manual for the accurate identification of cultivated ornamental flowering plants. Designed to meet the highest scientific standards, the vocabulary has nevertheless been kept as uncomplicated as possible so that the work is fully accessible to the informed gardener as well as to the professional botanist. This new edition has been thoroughly reorganised and revised, bringing it into line with modern taxonomic knowledge. Although European in name, the Flora covers plants cultivated in most areas of the United States and Canada as well as in non-tropical parts of Asia and Australasia. Volume 4 contains accounts of 82 families, mostly rather small, but including the Primulaceae (with Primula as its largest genus) and Ericaceae (with Rhododendron, the largest genus in the Flora).
