Designed to fit into the backpack of bushwalkers, students, botanists, field ecologists and foresters, Eucalypts of the Sydney Region describes the most common eucalypt species found in the Sydney region (from Newcastle and Nowra and west beyond Katoomba). Each species description comes with a distribution map, line drawings of buds and fruit, a coloured photograph of the bark and a diagram indicating growth habit. Species are grouped to assist with easy identification and comparison with similar species. The book avoids the use of specialist botanical terms, is designed for non-technical enthusiasts, and contains a wealth of detail for those wishing to become familiar with individual eucalypt species.
