Cycads of Australia<br>by Ken Hill & Roy Osborne


Australia is particularly rich in its cycad flora, with four different cycad genera and a great range in form and habitat in the 69 endemic species. Cycads of Australia highlights this diversity with more than 170 color photographs, botanical illustrations and distribution maps.

Extensive information on morphology and anatomy, reproduction and dispersal, economic botany, toxicity, conservation and cultivation is included.

Researched and written by two of Australia's leading cycad experts, Cycads of Australia is an easy-to-read definitive and up-to-date guide to the amazing world of cycads.
