US$ 12.00
The Brisbane Ranges area, situated 80 km west of Melbourne and 30 km north-west of Geelong, is extraordinarily rich in diversity. With basalt grasslands, heathy woodland, alluvial soils, buckshot gravel and granite rocks, it boasts more than 430 species of native plants. Wildflowers of the Brisbane Ranges contains magnificent photographs of more than 400 species, many of them orchids, including rare and vulnerable species such as the Naked Sun Orchid (Thelymitra circumsepta) and the Hyacinth Orchid (Dipodium pardalinum). A list of references, colour guide, glossary, comprehensive index and a soil type map have been included, to assist the reader in locating and identifying the different species. This full colour guide is the culmination of more than a decade of painstaking observation. It will help both the casual visitor and the keen naturalist to locate and identify an extensive range of wildflowers from this exceptional part of Victoria.
