Focus on Flora, Native Plants of the Adelaide Hills and Barossa is a response to a need expressed by lovers of native bushland for more information about what they see when they walk in the North Adelaide Hills.
Kersbrook Landcare Group spent seven years compiling the book, which depicts 280 local plant species, with full colour photographs.
It is a key guide, a soft cover book which is easy to carry and consult on walks . “Focus on Flora” also includes clear descriptions of each plant and will be extremely useful for the beginner or anyone with a knowledge of native plants.
Chapters include: Ground Dwellers, Creepers and Twiners, Small, Medium and Large Shrubs, Trees and Water Lovers over 313 pages.
There is a glossary, index, maps and other electronic and hard copy resources.
