'Ocean Shores to Desert Dunes' is an award-winning book that takes the reader on a journey through the landscapes of New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory, describing the 12 broad formations - or types - of vegetation, and 99 vegetation classes. Each vegetation class is comprehensively described, including where each occurs and why, interesting aspects of its ecology, evolution, history and development, as well as current conservation and management challenges. This spectacularly illustrated book includes more than 100 maps and 400 colour photographs, species lists for each of the vegetation classes, and extensive botanical and general indexes. 'Ocean Shores to Desert Dunes' is the perfect companion to the many plant identification guides currently available, and is based on a significant new state-wide map and vegetation classification by the author.
